Even those who take every possible step to promote a safe driving experience may struggle to respond to the actions of a reckless driver. Those who exhibit reckless behaviors while behind the wheel of a motor vehicle run the unfortunate risk of endangering the safety and lives of everyone nearby. A recent car accident involving a suspected reckless driver has claimed the life of one person and left another with injuries in Georgia. 

Fatal accident 

The incident is said to have occurred on a recent Thursday morning and involved up to three vehicles. According to reports, it began when for unknown reasons, the driver of a vehicle shifted into and began traveling in the wrong lane of traffic. Her vehicle reportedly proceeded to collide with a nearby car and the impact of the crash forced the car to strike a third vehicle. 

According to reports, the driver of the car suffered critical injuries and passed away shortly after the incident. Authorities also say that the driver who caused the crash was rushed to a nearby hospital and remains in critical condition. They also assert that she could be facing various charges in relation to the incident, including reckless driving and vehicular homicide. 

Loss of a loved one 

Those who suffer the loss of a loved one in a car accident due to the reckless actions of another driver may encounter an understandable desire for answers. Following the incident, a person in Georgia could consider consulting with legal counsel for guidance on their available options for legal recourse and assistance in navigating the process. Such advice could prove integral to helping a person prepare to pursue the compensation entitled through a wrongful death claim.
