Fatal Car Accidents Georgia
Fatal head-on collisions take the lives of innocent people every day in our states. Unfortunately, many of these accidents take place due to the negligent and reckless actions of others. Many accidents on our roadways take place due to drunk drivers. When drivers are impaired, their judgment is affected, and they are often unable to stop in time to avoid a collision. Distractions are another common cause of accidents, especially people texting on their phones or talking instead of paying attention to the road ahead. Other leading factors in many of the accidents include failure to yield, running red lights, and aggressive driving behaviors.
