Wrong-way accidents are among the most deadly type of accident. Most of the safety features in vehicles are designed to protect us from head-on collisions. Airbags, crumple zones, and seat belts attempt to keep passengers in a safe bubble in the event of a crash.
Yet even with safety features, fatalities happen. One head-on collision happened at high speed on Georgia 400. Just after 4 in the morning, the police started receiving calls of a driver going south in the northbound lanes near exit 13. Then calls came in reporting an accident. When the police arrived, one woman was dead and another was critically injured.
The accident happened at the crest of a hill. Police believe that neither driver could have seen the other until it was far too late. And considering that Georgia 400 is pretty empty at that hour, the rate of speed was likely very high. It is unknown if the wrong-way driver was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
If you are involved in an accident and speed is involved then your chances of injury are much higher. If you are hurt and you believe that it was the fault of the other driver, get the strong arm on your side. We will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf or help you file a lawsuit to get the compensation you deserve. Call John Foy & Associates.
