Woman Dies as a Result of Alleged Drunk Driving

Even after many years of media campaigns warning people not to drink and then drive, story after story in the news media tell the public of vehicular accidents involving intoxication. Alcohol can impair the senses enough that a drunk driving accident can kill or permanently injure anyone involved. A Georgia woman is facing charges after an alleged drunk driving accident. The Georgia State Patrol states that several troopers were called to the scene of an accident that left one person dead and two others injured. Through their investigation, they learned a woman driving a large SUV veered from her lane into that of oncoming traffic, where she collided head-on with a sedan. The sedan was then hit from behind by a pickup truck. The driver of the sedan died and the two people in the truck were injured, although not seriously. The troopers arrested the driver of the SUV, who was…

Motorcycle Accident Kills 1, Injures More

Motorcyclists often talk about the freedom they feel on their bikes, but they also know the potential risks. Since motorcycles offer less protection than other motor vehicles, when accidents occur, it can mean that injuries are more likely to happen and are more severe when they do. This is illustrated in a recent motorcycle accident here in Georgia that took the life of the driver and left the bike's passenger in critical condition.

That car then spun and struck a motorcycle and its sidecar. The driver of the motorcycle was thrown from the bike. He was revived twice at the scene of the accident before being airlifted to a Macon hospital. Sadly, the man died from his injuries. His wife, who was…

Teen Killed in Drunk Driving Incident

The arrests for drinking and driving in Georgia are numerous on any given day. Drunk driving continues to be a problem no matter how extensive advertising campaigns warning about the consequences.

Fatal Accidents Likely After Use of Alcohol, Drugs

It seems there are a number of people who think the rules of the road do not apply to them. Distracted driving, drug use or alcohol consumption before driving, or otherwise negligent behavior behind the wheel are all causes of fatal accidents on Georgia roadways. A man faces multiple charges after causing one of the state's most recent fatal accidents. The man and a friend were headed south when his 2007 Chevrolet sedan left the road. After hitting some trees, the car went spinning back onto the road and hit another vehicle going north. Rescue personnel found the man injured and his friend dead when they arrived at the scene.
