Man Gets Prison, Probation After Causing Drunk Driving Accident

Ask most people who have been victims in an accident due to reckless behavior and they will say the effects can last for years to come. Excessive speeding, tailgating, texting while driving and drunk driving are all examples of reckless driving that could cause irreparable damage should they result in an accident. A Georgia man has been sentenced for causing multiple injuries to two people in a drunk driving incident. In May 2017, the man was driving his pickup truck when he hit a sedan with a family of six inside. The mother and one of the children suffered several broken bones as well as other injuries. Testimony during his recent trial indicated the man's blood-alcohol level at the time of the collision was over three times the legal limit of .08 in Georgia. The trial lasted four days and the man was found guilty on six charges against him. He…

Crash as a Result of Reckless Driving Causes Woman to Lose Arm

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. A Georgia woman is seeking justice in the loss of her left arm from the reckless driving of a police officer. Nearly a year ago, the woman was crossing through an intersection on a green light when a police car slammed into the side of her vehicle. The loss of her arm was only one of her injuries from the collision. She claims neither the blue lights nor the siren on the front of the police vehicle were activated in an effort to warn other drivers of its approach. Police who responded to the scene contradicted the woman's claims, saying both warning signals were on. The proof needed from the dashcam…

Drunk Driving Responsible for Death to Pet, Injury to Owners

Driving after consuming alcoholic beverages is a recipe for disaster. According to some statistics, the number of accidents caused by drunk driving has risen in the past few years. Drunk driving by a Georgia man is said to be the cause of a collision causing injuries to people and death to a beloved pet. A report states a 57-year-old man driving a minivan crossed the center line into the lane of oncoming traffic. He crashed into an SUV headed straight toward him. He and the other driver had to be cut out of their vehicles and, along with the passenger in the SUV, were transported to a nearby hospital. All three were critically injured and a dog belonging to the couple in the SUV died. The incident report by police claimed the minivan contained drugs and alcohol, causing them to arrest the driver on charges of reckless driving, felony serious injury…

Drunk Driving Accident Takes Life of Woman

Not only do drivers in Georgia have to watch out for the actions of other drivers, but passengers also need to be careful in placing their trust, as well. Drunk driving is unacceptable and any potential passenger should have the courage to either take the keys away from an inebriated driver or find another ride. A passenger recently lost her life in a drunk driving accident. The only information given so far by police about the passenger has been that she was an adult. They state the driver of the car was not able to stay in her lane of traffic when she ran off the road and crashed into a nearby utility pole. The force of the collision caused injuries serious enough to kill the passenger, who was riding in the front seat. The driver was also injured and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Her injuries…
