Two friends were in the Ford SUV with the woman when she crashed into a Honda minivan. She chose to flee the scene of the early evening accident, even though a 38-year-old male in the minivan was injured. He was taken to a local hospital, where she remains in stable condition. A report on the accident states there were no other injuries.
When the woman drove away from the scene, a third vehicle followed her and alerted police as to her whereabouts. When police arrived, they not only found the woman but also a part of the minivan that had become lodged in the body of the SUV. She is now facing charges of hit and run with injuries as well as DUI.
If this woman is convicted, she will be living with the consequences of her actions. However, she will not be the only one as the victim in the minivan will, at the very least, have the memory of the specifics of the car accident as long as he lives. He will be able to file a personal injury lawsuit for financial compensation that would allow him to pay incurred medical bills if he gains an award. A Georgia attorney has information available for anyone interested in pursuing legal recourse.
