Woman Charged with Drunk Driving After Interstate Accident

According to the state patrol report, the woman stopped her Chevrolet Impala for unknown reasons in the middle of her lane on I-75. A tractor-trailer had been behind her and tried to go around the car but was unable to completely avoid hitting it. The Impala was thrown into a Honda Accord that was parked off the road in the emergency lane, pushing the Honda onto the interstate. The tractor-trailer and the Honda collided, pinning the sedan under the truck.

The truck driver and an 8-year-old male passenger in the Honda escaped injury, but the others in the Honda were not so fortunate. The female passenger in the Honda died at the scene and the male driver was severely injured. The driver of the Impala was injured but is expected to fully recover as she faces several charges, including first-degree homicide by vehicle and driving under the influence.

Too many families have had to say goodbye too soon to a loved one because of the senseless act of drunk driving. They often feel the person responsible should be held accountable and will file a wrongful death lawsuit toward that end. In many ways, that type of justice can help to bring them a measure of comfort. A Georgia attorney can evaluate the case of a potential client and give sound advice on the next steps to take, and help give the family the closure they seek.

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.
