Head-on collisions have the potential of resulting in serious or fatal injuries. In the aftermath of this type of car accident, the families of the victims are sometimes left wondering what happened since the investigation at the scene did not readily reveal a cause. A recent accident on Georgia's U.S. Highway 319 was both serious and fatal, and the families may not yet have all the answers they need regarding what happened.
It can sometimes be a mystery why car crashes occur. Often, it is only after the physical data is analyzed that a cause may be determined. This is especially true when there are no witnesses to a fatal car accident.
Car crashes seem to happen almost daily due to drivers who consumed alcohol prior to getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. Most Georgia drivers are told the dangers of drinking and driving as a part of learning to drive and prior to getting their driver's license. Some drivers seem to either forget this or ignore the consequences, which can lead to a serious or deadly car accident.
The inexperience of young drivers can cause many Georgia parents a certain amount of trepidation when their children get behind the wheel of a car. Where many experienced drivers are aware of the potential dangers of driving, young drivers might not yet understand all of the risks. For two sisters and a friend, the lack of experience on the part of the 18-year-old driver may have contributed to the car accident that changed all their lives forever.
We're generally concerned with whatever it is that our mind is focused on. In Georgia and elsewhere when a person is driving, a car accident will be significantly less likely when the driver is focused on driving. But that may be difficult for a teen who likes to hot-rod through the streets while blasting his favorite rock collection. A new research report published in the Journal of Accident, Analysis and Prevention indicates several driving deficiencies of 17 and 18-year-old new drivers that are facilitated when they are blasting heavy metal and engaging in "active listening."
