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.

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.

Apparently, the woman's white van jumped the curb when she was trying to park and crashed into the restaurant.
A Georgia teenager receiving his or her driver's license should be a joyous time in the life of that teen and his or her parents.

Under the best of circumstances driving Georgia's Interstates can have its dangers. When a driver gets behind the wheel after drinking, it only increases the hazards to others on the road.
