Georgia car accident injures 3 in Cherokee County

It is the time of year once again when children begin to return to school, first for open houses and then for classes. Those areas that include schools will be more congested and often will have a high number of less experienced drivers in the mix. A recent Georgia car accident occurred around 10 a.m. near a high school in Cherokee County. The accident sent three people, two of whom were children, to the hospital.

Local law enforcement responded to the scene of the crash, and their initial reports indicated that a car driven by a 21-year-old woman was hit by a sports utility vehicle. The SUV, operated by a 27-year-old woman, crashed into the driver's side of the car. Reportedly, the accident occurred because the car driver attempted to make a left turn without yielding the right of way to the other driver.

In this case, the younger driver had her 14-year-old brother with her. They were treated for non-life threatening injuries. The 8-year-old son of the other driver was taken to a different hospital for treatment of injuries that were not believed to be life threatening. There were no reports of injuries for the driver and her 11-year-old daughter, who was also in the SUV with her. 

The driver thought to have been at fault for this Georgia car accident was cited for failure to yield. Several personal injury claims could arise from the incident. The parents of the boy in the SUV may choose to pursue a claim for financial relief against the other driver and any separate owner of the vehicle she was operating. The damages accrued due to the injuries suffered by her brother may also be compensable, most likely through settlement of an insurance claim with regard to the vehicle the sister was driving.
