Police reports state a driver approached an intersection and hit a car that was stopped for a red light, causing that car to hit another vehicle. The driver kept going through the intersection, hitting yet another vehicle. The injured child was not responsive when found, and witnesses to the collisions were able to start CPR before an ambulance reached the scene.
The driver responsible for the collisions left her vehicle and began running in the road, dodging oncoming traffic. A police officer for the local transit system and an off-duty city police officer attempted to help her, but she attacked one of them and they took her to a nearby hospital for a physical assessment. She has since been arrested and charged with a number of violations, including DUI.
A negligent driver is a dangerous driver. In the case of serious injury or death, an award from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit can be used to pay funeral and burial, or medical and related costs. A Georgia resident who has suffered as a result of a car accident will want to talk to an attorney who has the needed experience in the pursuit of financial compensation.
