It has been reported that two people were killed in a recent motor vehicle crash in Georgia. The car accident occurred on a Monday night. It involved three vehicles.

The collision took place at about 11:45 p.m. Authorities reported that a car headed south on a local road struck a northbound car head-on. A 51-year-old woman and a 54-year-old man riding in the second car lost their lives in the wreck. Meanwhile, the 54-year-old driver of this second car suffered injuries and was transported to the hospital by helicopter.

The 29-year-old man driving the first car was also taken to the hospital. The crash caused yet another car to go onto the road’s east shoulder and land in a ditch. The driver of this third car suffered minor injuries and was not taken to the hospital. Police said they were not sure what caused the driver of the southbound car to collide with the other vehicle.

The surviving loved ones of the two individuals who died in the Georgia car accident may choose to file wrongful death claims against the driver of the first car, who appears to have caused the head-on collision. In addition, the injured driver of the second car may choose to file a personal injury claim, seeking monetary  damages. Liability must be established to the satisfaction of the civil court hearing the case before claims for monetary damages will be adjudicated. Damages in a successfully fought claim may help to cover burial costs, hospital expenses and other accident-related losses.
