Police Investigating Truck Accident

Police officers in Georgia work hard to keep the roadways safe for residents and visitors alike. It is not unusual for large trucks to be mixed in with traffic, especially on highways. High speeds, inclement conditions, or driver errors can contribute to a serious truck accident. The sheer size of these vehicles can result in increased risk for injury or death in the event of a crash. Law enforcement has launched an investigation into a recent truck accident, and for officers, this one hit close to home. The victim was an officer from Smyrna, Georgia's police department. For reasons that are still unknown, a semi-truck flipped over and landed squarely on the officer's patrol car. The driver's side of the car was crushed. The officer was taken to a local hospital for immediate treatment of crash-related injuries. The investigation is ongoing, and it is not clear if police have any…

Drunk Driving Can Hurt Those Closest To You

When Georgia residents hear about a bad accident involving drinking and driving, it may be natural to imagine that a vehicle operated by an inebriated driver crashed into another. While this is often the case, a drunk driving fatality can also result from a single-vehicle accident. A recent case illustrates the repercussions of how driving under the influence can have especially personal consequences.

She was killed as a result of injuries suffered in the crash. Police say she was thrown from the vehicle as it spun out of control. After being treated for his injuries, the driver was arrested and taken to…

Family May Consider Wrongful Death Suit

For a 13-year-old Georgia boy, the mid-June day seemed ordinary. He was helping his family do yard work. The boy was edging the sidewalk, removing grass and weeds close to the pavement where a mower may not be able to reach. An unexpected tragedy turned this uneventful day into a wrongful death case in the blink of an eye. Seemingly out of nowhere, an SUV came speeding around the corner, and the driver failed to properly negotiate the turn. She struck both the boy and his father and did not even stop. As she drove away, the father, who suffered a serious leg injury, did his best to help his son, but the boy's injuries were severe, and being badly injured himself, there was little he could do. The injured father and son were taken to a local hospital for emergency medical treatment, and while the father was able to hang on, the…
