Using drugs and driving simply don't mix. Law enforcement deals with DUI car accidents on a seemingly daily basis. One Georgia police detective may have ignored the lessons he may have learned on the job, as he was recently arrested for DUI following a car accident.
There are so many things that can be a distraction to drivers. Paying attention to cellphones, passengers or even one's own thoughts can distract a driver enough to cause an avoidable car accident.

Everyone seems to be in a hurry, especially when driving from one point to another. Being in a hurry and not obeying the rules of the road often causes a car accident with injuries or fatalities. A college student has been sentenced after a 64-year-old Georgia woman was killed in a car accident.
Collisions between vehicles happen for any number of reasons. Distractions by cell phones or passengers, along with the weather and the inattentiveness of other drivers can all result in a car accident that causes serious injury or death. Police in a middle Georgia town have charged a 21-year-old man with vehicular homicide after his negligent actions caused a car accident.
Whether it is from distraction, impatience or simply recklessness many people do not seem to take the proper precautions while on the road.

Police in Georgia are still on the lookout for the driver and passenger of a vehicle that nearly killed a little girl on the afternoon of March 29.

Motor vehicle accidents can change a life in an instant. They can leave families with so many questions as they struggle to deal with the aftermath. When a car accident results in injury or death, victims and their loved ones can have their entire world turned upside down. This may be the case in the recent death of a Georgia man who was the victim of a head-on collision.
Understandably, it's stressful when a vehicle breaks down en route to a particular destination. It's not always possible to safely pull off the road in such circumstances. In fact, vehicle occupants may be at risk for injury as they attempt to make car repairs or otherwise address the problem. A recent car accident in Georgia involved numerous vehicles, one of which was a disabled car whose headlights weren't functioning.
The pain of losing a limb is not just physical but psychological, as well. When the limb is lost as a result of an accident due to reckless driving, anger is yet another emotion the injured party has to endure.
