There are many people who attempt to flee after committing one serious crime or multiple crimes. Georgia officers are searching for a driver who made bail after a car accident that resulted in one death and two serious injuries. The suspect is also wanted for his involvement in other criminal activity, and authorities say that he should be considered dangerous. They also ask that anyone who has information about the suspect to contact police.
Many accidents that occur can be attributed to young and inexperienced drivers. Other times, experienced drivers may choose to ignore what may seem to be small rules because they are in a hurry or maybe because they do not believe that there is any danger at that time. Georgia State Patrol recently responded to a car accident involving a similar situation. Two vehicles collided; one, a pickup truck, was driven by a 16-year-old and the other, a car, was operated by a 62-year-old.
Wearing a seat belt can be the difference between life and death as many Georgia drivers know. Most drivers fasten their seat belt out of habit, but there are some who do not believe that they need it. Following simple laws like wearing a seat belt, stopping at a stop sign, yielding to traffic, or following the speed limit can help to limit the number or the severity of injuries caused by accidents. Some of these can even help to prevent a car accident entirely.
Winter can be an unpredictable time of year, even for those living in the south. Within the last few years, snow has become a more common occurrence in Georgia. Even though the snow usually lasts only a few days, it's effect on roadways and traffic can be extreme. It is not uncommon for drivers who are not accustomed to driving in snow and ice on a regular basis to be involved in a car accident.
Nearly everyone has had to attend a funeral at some point in his or her life. They are emotionally charged events, which can be difficult for many to attend. However, many people begin grieving before the funeral is even scheduled, and the time leading up to the funeral itself can be incredibly difficult. In Georgia, one father was unfortunate enough to witness the car accident that claimed the life of one of his sons and injured the other while they were on their way to the funeral of another family member.
When drivers are involved in an accident one of their first instincts may be to exit the vehicle and survey the damage or get away from the vehicle. A car accident that occurred on I-75 in Georgia underscores that this reaction can have tragic results. In light of the tragic accident, authorities have attempted to emphasize the importance of staying inside of the vehicle after an accident so long as it remains safe to do so.
It is always tragic when a person suffers a serious injury in an accident, even more so when that person is a child. One such car accident occurred earlier this month and resulted in what many parents may consider to be one of their worst nightmares. This crash is the reason why a 7-year-old girl is currently a patient at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.
Most Georgia families know that coping with the death of a loved one can be difficult. Too often, a car accident is the cause of a family's grief. A single, poor decision can forever change the lives of individuals as well as entire families.
Georgia residents living in rural areas have probably been caught behind individuals driving farm equipment, like tractors, on the roads. These vehicles only travel between 18 and 25 mph, and other drivers can sometimes become frustrated with the slow pace. This often results in drivers speeding around the slower-moving farm equipment. Unfortunately, drivers do not always wait for a safe time to pass these vehicles, and the results can be disastrous.
Most drivers, especially young drivers, have felt the temptation to speed along a stretch of highway. Unfortunately, some have given into this temptation with tragic results. Such was the case on Sept. 23 when the Georgia State Patrol responded to a car accident on Highway 16, which they suspect may have been caused by reckless driving and speeding.
