Not only are Georgia car accidents seemingly random, but so are their effects. A car can be completely mangled, but the driver walks away without a scratch. What appears to be nothing more than a fender bender, can result in years of pain and rehabilitation. A small bump to the back of a moving car sends it spiraling out of control, taking the lives of all inside, but the car and driver that hit them suffer no damage. The type and results of an accident are almost limitless, but one thing remains the same, the serious effects it has on its victims and those that love them.

Georgia collision between truck and car kills two

When on the road in Rome and throughout Georgia, drivers need to be vigilant of the presence of large trucks on the road. These vehicles are heavy, massive and can cause a significant amount of damage if there is a collision, especially if it is with a smaller vehicle. While in most instances, a truck driver is cautious and operates his or her vehicle safely, there are times when the driver might have been driving too long without a break, is speeding or violating some other law leading to a semi truck accident. Even if the driver is operating the vehicle safely, circumstances can lead to a crash.
