Wrong Way Car Accident Kills Georgia Woman

The life of one young woman was lost and the life of another was seriously impacted in a wrong way car accident. According to a report published on, it was around four in the morning when a car traveling the wrong way on Georgia State Route 400 collided head on with a Nissan SUV. The driver of the wrong way car (aged 21) was pronounced dead at the scene, while the SUV driver (aged 27) had to be extracted from her vehicle and rushed to a local hospital. Her condition has been updated from “critical” to “serious.”

The accident, which happened in Forsyth County, is still under investigation, but a story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution said alcohol “was considered a factor.”

The accident was the second wrong way accident fatality in the Atlanta area in a matter of days. Early the previous Saturday, a DeKalb County police officer was killed when his cruiser was struck by a vehicle headed the wrong way on South Fulton Parkway. That accident is also still under investigation.

If you have been injured by a wrong way driver, you are obviously not at fault. As a result of the other driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for certain damages. These damages can include:

  • Property damage
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages because of time off work
  • Physical therapy
  • Permanent disability
  • And more
