Depending on where you are on Georgia roads, it’s not so easy to find vehicles that fall off the road, especially if you fall down a cliff. It took someone 12 hours to find one such vehicle. Fortunately, one of the occupants was still alive. WSB TV reports.
The Georgia State Patrol told the media that two people were driving in Hall County along Old Cornelia Highway late at night on Saturday. The car left the road, hit a tree, then fell down a 50-foot embankment before landing on its roof.
A nearby neighbor heard the impact, but could not find the vehicle in the darkness. 12 hours later, around noon on Sunday, he went out again to search for the source of the sound and heard a woman calling for help. He called the police to assist.
Both victims, the driver and the woman, were taken to Northeast Georgia Hospital. The driver was pronounced dead there, and the woman is in unknown condition. From the evidence found so far, the driver is suspected to have been intoxicated with multiple drugs, including alcohol, when he crashed.
From what appears to be a DUI has led to a horrific experience for the passenger. We hope that she recovers quickly and can seek compensation over what happened.
