Following too closely and failure to yield are two of the most common mistakes that can cause an accident. Improper lane change is another driving mistake that can cause an accident. It may have been the cause of a deadly crash on Interstate-75. The Telegraph reported on this deadly accident.
At about 10:40 am yesterday, a small car was attempting to change lanes on Interstate 75 North near the Perry exit. This led to a domino-effect of crashes – the car first struck an SUV and that SUV hit another truck that was towing yet another vehicle.
The SUV overturned, killing the driver at the scene. This occurred just north of exit 135 at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter.
The pickup truck hit the guardrail and sustained major damage. The other vehicle was only damaged in a minor way.
As the wreckage was cleared, only one lane – the emergency lane – was open for travel for nearly three hours.
Trooper First Class Michael Strickland is investigating the crash with help from the Specialized Collision Reconstruction team.
The identity of the man in the SUV is being withheld pending the notification of his family.
At this time, alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the accident.
