Fatal accident on Georgia roadway sends 6 to hospital

Car accidents on Georgia roadways often become deadly due to high speeds. However, there was recently a fatal accident that sent six to the hospital due to a person driving a car under the influence of drugs. The 23-year-old male driver was taken to WellStar South Cobb Hospital for his injuries.

There were two passengers in the car who were also taken to WellStar South Cobb Hospital: a 22-year-old male who later died from his injuries and a 24-year-old male. The accident happened when the car, which was traveling southbound, crossed the center line and hit a minivan head-on. The 36-year-old male driving the minivan, his wife and his child were all taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital for treatment of their injuries.

The driver of the car was charged with failure to maintain his lane, giving a false name to police, and driving under the influence of drugs. He was also charged with first degree homicide by vehicle for the death of his passenger and driving on a suspended license, according to the jail records for Cobb County. The local STEP UNIT (Selective Traffic Enforcement Program Unit) for Cobb County is still investigating the scene of the accident.

Roadway accidents can lead to serious injuries. Victims of a fatal accident such as this one in Georgia may choose to seek a judgement for medical bills, lost wages, and for final expenses in the case of a fatality. A conviction of the charges against a driver would help to pave the way as proof of wrongdoing in any suits filed by those involved.
