The Georgia State Patrol investigated a fatal accident on May 20. The accident occurred when a tractor trailer hit a van from the rear and pushed it into a 59-year-old man in a wheelchair. The fatal accident happened on Highway 21 in Screven County.
Former Georgia State Senator Joey Brush was recently in a fatal accident. Brush was reportedly riding his motorcycle to a meeting near his home when the accident happened. This was the first fatal motorcycle accident in the area this year.
Traffic accidents can happen in a split second on Georgia roadways. Those accidents can lead to a fatality more often than one might expect. A recent accident on Georgia 135 may lead to charges being filed against the driver as a result of the fatal accident.
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.
Georgia roadways can be a dangerous place when there is a driver who is not paying attention to his or her driving. Recently, a fatal accident on Georgia 22 happened when a pickup truck pulling a trailer veered into the path of a tractor-trailer. The trailer being towed by the pickup truck went airborne at the time of the crash and landed on another car on the roadway.
There are times when the cause of an accident is not immediately obvious, so authorities must take some time to investigate the incident before filing charges or even placing blame on any of the people involved. That seems to be the case in an accident now being jointly investigated by the Crawford County Sheriff's Office and the Georgia State Patrol. The recent two-vehicle fatal accident occurred on Georgia 42.
Fatal accidents happen much too often, and, on the interstates of the nation, the chances of survival are often less likely than on other roads. This is due to high speeds and the high volume of traffic that is often found on interstate highways. A recent fatal accident left several people injured and one dead on a Georgia interstate.
Sometimes victims of a car crash are not even on the road or in a vehicle. A fatal accident can happen anywhere. On Saturday, Feb. 14, 2015, a 41-year-old Jonesboro man was killed in a fatal accident when the driver apparently lost control of his vehicle on a local Georgia roadway.
On Feb. 6, 2015, a 67-year-old woman was trying to park at a restaurant when she lost control of the vehicle. Around 4:30 p.m., Georgia police were called to Buffalo Wild Wings Grill and Bar in Kennesaw to investigate the fatal accident. Apparently, the woman's white van jumped the curb when she was trying to park and crashed into the restaurant.
Teen drivers are a higher risk on the road, as most people know. Teen drivers who are not licensed and who have not completed a driver's education course are an even bigger risk. A recent fatal accident in Georgia illustrates this point.
