Repeat Offender Causes Fatal Drunk Driving Accident

Reports say that the victim was driving home from her job at Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament when the accident occurred. She was driving on Georgia Highway 316, a divided highway, when her vehicle was struck head-on by another vehicle traveling in the wrong direction. After striking the victim’s car, the second driver attempted to continue driving, but instead, he struck another vehicle.

The driver of the third car was able to swerve far enough to avoid injury. However, the woman driving the first vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene, and the at-fault driver was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center. At the hospital, police administered a breathalyzer test after smelling alcohol on the injured driver’s breath. A blood test revealed that his blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit. He was charged with vehicular homicide, DUI, driving on the wrong side of the road, and reckless driving.

Being involved in a car accident, especially one caused by drunk driving, is a very traumatic experience, and many victims are left with a large amount of unexpected expenses they may not be able to cover. People in Georgia who have been injured or who have family members who have died in car accidents could benefit from speaking with an attorney. A lawyer may be able to help his or her client to obtain compensation for medical costs, property damage, or funeral expenses when necessary.
