Multiple-vehicle crash kills 3, injures 2 in Georgia

On Behalf of | Oct 1, 2021 | Car Wrecks |

There could be a multitude of scenarios in which a driver could lose control of a vehicle and veer into other lanes of traffic. Once this occurs, nearby drivers may be left scrambling to escape the path of danger, and should a collision take place, the results could prove catastrophic. A recent car accident involving similar circumstances has reportedly claimed the lives of three individuals and left two others with injuries in Georgia. 

Crash reports 

Authorities have stated that the incident took place on a recent Friday night. For reasons unknown, the driver of a southbound car suddenly lost control of her vehicle and entered into oncoming lanes. The car proceeded to collide head-on with a pickup truck, and the impact of the crash caused the car to spin into another lane and collide with a third car. 

Reports indicate that both passengers in the first car suffered fatal harm and died at the scene. The driver of the first car was taken to a hospital with critical injuries but passed away at the facility. Two others involved in the incident reportedly suffered injuries in the process. While an investigation into the accident is underway, no further information was provided as to whether any contributing factors have been identified.  

Injury or loss 

Suffering serious injuries or the loss of someone close in a car accident can be a devastating experience under any circumstance. Should this occur due to the negligent behavior of another party, the victims or surviving loved ones of the deceased may be left facing an understandable desire for answers and justice. Those who suffer harm or loss under similar scenarios could choose to consult with an attorney for guidance on their options and assistance in preparing to seek the full amount of restitution to which they are entitled to receive.
