Two people were injured in a Cobb County car accident when a vehicle crossed the center lane and struck another vehicle. According to a news report in The Examiner, the car accident occurred on C.H. James Parkway in Powder Springs. Officials say a Rockmart man lost control of his gray 2001 Mazda Tribute before it crossed over the center lane and struck a blue 1996 Chevrolet Impala. The driver of the Tribute sustained non-life-threatening injuries and the 47-year-old driver of the Chevrolet suffered serious injuries. Officials are still investigating the cause of this auto accident.
Many of the most devastating Georgia car accidents involve wrong-way vehicles and head-on collisions. According to the Georgia Department of Transportation’s 2008 Crash Analysis, Statistics & Information report, three out of four fatal crashes occurred on two-way roads with no separation or barrier.
Whenever an accident involves a negligent driver, a car accident attorney will be needed to determine liability for the crash. Drivers who negligently cause these types of devastating crashes by driving while distracted, fatigued, or intoxicated may be held accountable for their negligence. When a defective auto part contributes to a crash, the manufacturer of the faulty party may be held accountable as well.
