2 Die in Macon Car Accident

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. Recently, snow and ice effectively shut down businesses and schools across Georgia and caused a number of accidents on interstate roadways. One of these accidents occurred on I-75 North. A car containing two individuals slid on a patch of black ice and struck a guardrail. The driver exited the vehicle in what authorities suspect was an effort to survey the damage to the car or view the road conditions. The driver of an approaching car…

Teenager Dies in Car Accident on His Way to a Funeral

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. The accident occurred between two vehicles early one afternoon on GA 247. One car was driven by a 20-year-old Macon resident, and the other vehicle contained the victim and his brother. The brothers were following their father's car to the funeral of their aunt at the time of the accident. Unfortunately, the father witnessed the accident through the rearview mirror of…

Car Accident Kills Woman Who Exited Her Vehicle on the Interstate

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. The initial accident that began the deadly chain of events involved only two vehicles. A car rear-ended a pickup truck, with the car then facing the wrong way on the interstate. The truck did not stop, but the driver later contacted authorities to say that he kept driving because there did not seem to be any major damage to his vehicle. However, the car facing the wrong way on the interstate was struck by another vehicle and…

Her death was caused by a man who had been arrested on multiple occasions for drunk driving. He is currently being held in Gwinnett County Jail.
