A 24-year-old woman was injured in a Georgia traffic accident involving a head-on collision between a motorcycle and an SUV. According to a WLTZ news report, the motorcycle crash occurred at Milgen Road and Milgen Court in Columbus. Officials are trying to determine if the victim’s motorcycle crossed the centerline before crashing into the SUV. She has been listed in critical condition and the SUV’s driver was hospitalized with back and neck pain. It is not clear if either motorist will face citations for the collision.
There are a number of questions that arise whenever a head-on collision occurs at an intersection. Did the accident result from a motorist drifting into oncoming traffic, or did the collision occur as the result of a dangerous left turn? Did one of the drivers fail to yield the right of way at the intersection? Did one of the drivers enter oncoming traffic while fatigued or under the influence of drugs or alcohol? Did a dangerous roadway condition contribute to the crash?
