Two Dead in Drunk Driving Accident

The pain from losing a loved one because of a driver who is under the influence lasts a lifetime. Having to learn to live without someone because of a drunk driving accident can be difficult in so many ways, including the loss of economic provision and the loss of companionship. Two people were killed in a drunk driving accident, and Georgia police have arrested the man they say caused the fatalities. Initial investigations by police reveal a 41-year-old man driving a Chevrolet SUV ran a red light and crashed into a Toyota SUV going through the intersection. The Chevrolet bounced off the Toyota, left the road and ran into a tree before stopping. One passenger in the vehicle died upon impact, and another died once he arrived at a nearby hospital. Injuries to the occupants of the Toyota were not serious, and the driver of the Chevrolet was released from the…

Georgia Teen Seriously Injured in Car Accident; Arrest Made

On behalf of Dozier Law Firm, LLC posted in Car Accidents on Thursday, July 25, 2019. Most people are aware of there is a potential chance of being involved in an accident while driving. Those involved in an accident are required to remain at the scene. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials in Georgia say that a driver recently fled the scene of a car accident that injured a pedestrian. Rescue workers responded to the scene during the early morning hours of a day in July. According to reports, a 19-year-old was discovered lying in the road. He was transported to the hospital and listed in serious condition. Police believe that the teen was struck by a vehicle, and the driver of that vehicle left. However, an investigator allegedly discovered the identity of the driver and located the vehicle believed to have been involved in the days following the accident. The driver, also a 19-year-old male, is charged…

Police Detective at Fault for Car Accident

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. The detective was off-duty and in his personal vehicle on a weekend afternoon when his car went off the road and onto a sidewalk. A pedestrian was hit but not critically injured. The detective stayed on the scene until police and emergency responders arrived. The injured victim was taken to a local hospital after complaining of leg pain. Responding officers arrested the detective after giving him a field sobriety test. He was cited with reckless driving in addition to the DUI charge and will be on administrative leave until an investigation has concluded. He has been in his current position for two years with no other…

Drunk Driving Accident Kills Man on I-95

Driving while under the influence is simply not smart. The chances of injuring or killing someone are considerably higher when a driver does not have a clear head while behind the wheel. While the penalties for drunk driving vary depending on the damage done, there are others who are forever separated from a loved one or who may end up with astronomical medical bills from treatment for an injury that should have never happened. Drunk driving is said to be the reason a man was killed in an early morning accident on a Georgia interstate. The report from a Georgia State Patrol trooper stated the 29-year-old driver of a pickup truck was headed north on I-95 and was at the point of a bridge over a creek when he ran into the back of a Mack dump truck. The collision caused the dump truck to veer toward the guardrails, and when…

Car Accident Takes Lives of 2 Children

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. Police in a Georgia county is charging a woman for her part in the deaths of two children after they say she caused a fatal car accident. Police say the late-night accident happened when the driver of a northbound SUV crossed over to the southbound lane and hit a smaller SUV head-on. The impact pushed the smaller SUV into a sedan. A 14-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy in the smaller SUV were pronounced dead after rescue personnel transported the three drivers and their passengers to a nearby hospital. All others are expected to recover, though further details regarding their injuries were not reported. Once the 28-year-old driver of the larger SUV is released from medical treatment, police…
