Cherokee County Accident Leaves Four Injured

Atlanta Car AccidentFour people were injured in a recent Cherokee County car accident involving a Mini Cooper, a pickup truck that was pulling a trailer, a Ford F-150, and a Volvo. According to a CBS Atlanta news report, the car crash occurred at Cherokee Drive and Holly Springs Road. Officials say the 30-year-old driver of the Mini Cooper entered the intersection as the pickup was making a left turn. The female driver of the Mini Cooper swerved around the trailer, crossed into the opposite lane, and struck the Ford F-150. The Volvo behind the F-150 was also affected. The driver of the Mini Cooper was the most seriously hurt of the four injured victims. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Intersection accidents are common in Georgia, and they often result in devastating injuries. It is important whenever an intersection accident occurs to determine who had the right-of-way and if anyone failed to obey a traffic control device. Many of the most serious injury accidents at intersections involve drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way when turning left.

According to Georgia statute 40-6-71, “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left within an intersection or into an alley, private road, or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard.”

Failing to yield the right-of-way when making a left turn can result in a serious injury accident. Victims of distracted, speeding, impaired and fatigued drivers can pursue financial compensation for their losses by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. A skilled Atlanta car accident attorney, like those at The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C., can make sure that fair compensation is offered for the victims’ medical bills, lost wages, and other related damages.
