2 Airlifted for Treatment After Car Accident

There can be numerous reasons a Georgia driver gets into a car accident on the road. While cellphones are thought to be responsible for the most obvious loss of focus during a driver's travels, other passengers, other vehicles, and even medical conditions can contribute to a lack of concentration that could cause a car accident. Four adults and six children were involved in a recent car accident where the injuries ranged from minor to critical. According to an officer with the Georgia State Patrol, a pickup truck with two adults had stopped on a state highway to make a left-hand turn. A minivan with two juvenile passengers and the driver had stopped behind the truck. A third vehicle, a subcompact car occupied by one adult and 4 children rammed into the rear of the stationary minivan. All four adults suffered minor injuries, as did four of the children. Injuries to the…

Police officer injured in drunk driving accident

Consuming alcohol or drugs and then driving often causes great distress for a number of people. Should the driver cause an accident, he or she may spend time in jail, lose driving privileges and pay fines. Those injured in a drunk driving accident may have permanent or long-term debilitating injuries that adversely affect their everyday lives. A Georgia police officer was injured in an apparent drunk driving accident, and the man deemed responsible faces some serious charges as a result. Approximately seven months ago around 11 p.m., the officer was parked in his service vehicle when a Jeep Wrangler crashed into it. His airbag deployed, and he ended up with a concussion and damage to his eardrum. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The driver of the Jeep drove away after the collision, running a red light in the process. Eyewitnesses say the man was weaving back and…

Allegedly Inebriated Man Causes Car Accident

Drinking and driving is selfish. Many who consume alcohol or drugs before getting behind the wheel believe they will reach their destination without causing a car accident. Others simply do not care if they cause harm or not. Two people were injured in a car accident when a Georgia man apparently decided he would drive after drinking. A police report was released by the responding officer after the man made a turn and entered the wrong lane, crashing into an SUV. A child and an adult in the SUV were injured and were taken to a nearby hospital to be treated. Neither had been critically injured and were released by the time the details of the report were published. Police say the man who instigated the collision seemed to be inebriated, as it was believed he had an odor of alcohol on his breath, was slurring his words, and was unsteady on…

Man Facing Charges After Woman’s Death in Car Accident

It does not take but a moment's distraction for a motor vehicle to cause some serious damage. Just a split second of taking eyes off the road can result in a car accident where someone is killed or critically injured. A Georgia man faces numerous charges concerning a car accident that claimed the life of a 42-year-old woman. The woman was headed west in her sedan when an SUV traveling east crossed over the centerline into oncoming traffic. The head-on collision killed the woman. The SUV driver and his female passenger were also injured and taken to an area medical facility, but they are both expected to make a complete recovery. The man turned himself in to the county authorities and has been charged with reckless driving, vehicular homicide and improper use of a seat belt. Reportedly, there are other unspecified charges pending against him. At the time of a report on the accident,…

Drunk Driving Said to be Cause of Man’s Death

Stories consistently make the news headlines about people who have lost their lives too soon due to some type of accident. Often, those accidents are caused by drunk driving. A Georgia man who had completed medical school and was looking forward to a career in physical therapy died at the age of 26. The tragedy has been blamed on drunk driving. The University of Georgia graduate was on his way home from a training class when another driver, who police say had been drinking, crashed into him. The victim's car was so badly damaged that the door had to be cut at the hinges so emergency responders could remove him. He was rushed to an area hospital, but he died two days later. Police at the scene reported the other driver was unsteady on his feet, and his speech was slurred. Despite police finding cans of unopened beer in his pickup…

Grand Jury Indictment in Fatal Car Accident Case

Caution on the road is imperative these days, as the potential for an accident is present or at any time of the day or night. That potential for a fatal car accident increases with the number of people who consume alcohol or drugs and then get behind the wheel. A Georgia woman was recently indicted by a grand jury for killing three adults in a fatal car accident. The 59-year-old woman was transporting four people to their assisted-living facility nearly 10 months ago when she ran off the road in her SUV. The vehicle crossed three lanes, ran off the road and hit the side of a ditch before flipping over. Three of her passengers died at the scene from the impact and she and a fourth passenger were seriously injured. They were air-lifted to a hospital 30 miles away from the accident. Responding police say they found cocaine in the driver's…

Alleged Drunk Driving Cause for Woman’s Arrest

Georgia police see numerous bizarre behavior patterns when making traffic stops. In their efforts to keep the roads safe for all drivers, they find many stops are made because of drunk driving. A state trooper recently responded to a drunk driving incident and made an arrest. Emergency personnel were already on the scene when the officer arrived to find the driver of a vehicle asleep behind the wheel. The car was stopped at a traffic light around midnight and there were, in addition to the driver, three older, handicapped passengers inside. When the driver awoke and got out of her vehicle, police saw she had soiled herself and noticed there was a strong smell of alcohol coming from inside the car. Police reports claim the driver seemed disoriented. She could not maintain her balance and she admitted she had been drinking, but would not take a field sobriety test. Some investigation revealed…

Drunk Driving Incident Sends 3 to Hospital

It does not matter what time of day or night or whether a person is walking or driving, a roadway can be a site of extreme peril when alcohol consumption is a factor. Accidents caused by drunk driving may cause minimal damage to other vehicles or people, or they may be catastrophic with fatalities and/or severe injuries. Police in a Georgia town have arrested a 59-year-old man for drunk driving after his vehicle struck three pedestrians. Reports state the 2 p.m. incident began with the man turned his Jaguar onto a residential street, ran off the road and then hit one of the houses. He backed away from the scene, continued along the street and made another turn when he hit two pedestrians walking in the crosswalk. He continued a short distance and hit an SUV parked on the street. The force of that collision shoved the SUV into a third pedestrian.…

Woman Seeks Justice After Car Accident Injuries

Everyone can make a mistake, but that does not excuse carelessness while operating a motor vehicle. Should that carelessness lead to a car accident that causes the injury or death of another person, the driver could be financially accountable and may be subject to a civil lawsuit. Sometimes, criminal charges apply as well. A Georgia woman was injured in a car accident and is seeking justice that the local police department claims it will not enforce. The woman says she was in the parking lot of a retail store after making a purchase and returning to her car when another car backed out of its parking space and hit her. She claims the two of them made eye contact before the man began to drive in reverse. Not only did the car knock her to the ground, but the woman claims the driver ran over one of her legs before driving away. A dash…

Woman Files Lawsuit After Son Injured in Car Accident

The negligence of one person can have a ripple effect, resulting in adverse consequences for a number of people. One person not paying attention to what he or she is doing while driving can lead to permanent injury, death and even lawsuits. A Georgia woman has filed a wrongful death lawsuit after her son was seriously injured in a car accident. Just over two years ago, the woman was turning off a highway into a private driveway when a school bus slammed into the rear of the car behind her, pushing that car into the rear of her vehicle. A report did not detail all of the injuries to the woman's son, only that there were several, including traumatic injury to his brain. There was also no mention of the child's present mental and physical condition. The attorney the woman retained has requested a jury trial to determine damages for all medical…
