Police Believe Drunk Driving Took Life of Delivery Person

The 54-year-old woman was on the road just after 3:30 a.m. for her job as a delivery person. She had worked delivering for the local newspaper in the past but had started working for another company. As she was driving her route, her small Dodge Neon was hit from behind by a much larger Chevrolet Avalanche. The car became stuck under the front bumper of the truck, and both vehicles went off the road and hit a tree.

The woman was killed instantly, but the driver of the truck, a 24-year-old male, said he was not hurt and did not want to be treated. He is facing charges of first-degree homicide by vehicle and DUI, with additional charges possible after the police conclude their investigation. It was believed the woman had plans to retire in the next few weeks.

The senseless act of drinking and driving will likely follow this young man for the rest of his life. The lives of those who loved the victim will certainly be changed as they learn to live without her presence. Families in Georgia who have lost a loved one to drunk driving will want to contact an attorney as they make decisions on pursuing possible financial compensation.

Wonderful law firm that cares

I was injured in a terrible fall which left my foot, arm back and knee badly bruised. The Dozier Law Firm was awesome. Attorney Dustin Hamilton reviewed and accepted my case and within a few months he was able to settle my case for more than I ever imagine. The Dozier Law Firm is A+ in my book.
