Road Rage Possibly Led to Tragic Gainesville Auto Accident

By Grant Law Office on October 22, 2013

CBS Atlanta reports that during the early morning on October 11, Gainesville police received an alarming phone call from a couple who were, at the time, driving a 2006 Toyota Highlander on Browns Bridge Road, west of McEver Road. They reported being followed by a red pickup truck, the driver of which appeared to be in a bout of road rage.

According to the transcript of the emergency call, the 48-year-old male driver of the pickup truck was flashing his headlights in an aggressive manner at the Highlander while bumping the vehicle from behind. He then attempted to pass the couple using the opposite lane. The couple says he was going about 70 miles per hour when the unthinkable occurred.

The pickup truck collided head-on with an SUV going the other way. The SUV was being driven by a 20-year-old woman.

Both drivers died in the high-speed collision.

“That’s a tragic end to this story, now those families are devastated and affected by this,” said a Gainesville Police official.

Fortunately, two female passengers of the SUV were transported to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

All motorists are expected to uphold a certain standard of behavior that is conducive to safety. Road rage defies this standard and should never be condoned since it often leads to devastating accidents such as the one described above. Any driver who injures or kills another due to road rage or another form of negligent or reckless driver behavior can be held liable for all damages that resulted from the incident.
