In a case that Georgia patrol officers are still investigating, one man has left two others dead and one injured in a car accident on the freeway, but an actual cause for the accident itself has yet to be determined. The man who was driving the vehicle that struck the victims was taken to Appling Hospital for a precautionary check-up to ensure that no damage had been sustained. However, the car that he hit lost 2 people, ages 23 and 24. In addition, one woman in the car needed to be flown to a medical center for emergency attention.
According to police reports, the accident occurred shortly before midnight on the freeway. It was stated that the man who had been driving the pick-up truck hit the victim’s car straight on while driving on the wrong side of the road. It is unknown why he was driving on the opposite side just yet, but the potential of charges is already being weighed.
If you have found yourself surviving a vehicular accident, your post-accident options may seem difficult to sort through and the situation itself may seem overwhelming. This is why anyone in a similar situation may end up benefiting from the advice of an attorney if they should choose to seek it out.
