Driver Killed in Georgia Highway 196 Car – Dump Truck Collision

By Grant Law Office on April 1, 2013

The driver of a minivan was killed in a Georgia car accident after colliding with a dump truck. The Fort Stewart Patch reports that the fatal truck accident occurred on Highway 196 in Fleming. Officials say the minivan was headed west when it collided with the dump truck, but details regarding how the crash occurred have not been released. The driver was killed and the young daughter of the victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment with unknown injuries.

According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, six million people were involved in motor vehicle crashes between the years 2000 and 2006. After that seven-year period, 2,394 people were involved in an accident every day and more than 2,500 injuries were reported every week. In the year 2006, 270 people were killed in Georgia car accidents. One out of six of those fatalities involved a large truck.

If you are one of the many Georgia residents who has lost a loved one in a fatal accident, there are a number of steps that you can take to protect your best interests. It is important that you gather every piece of evidence and information you possibly can. Write down the details of the crash, collect the contact and insurance information of everyone involved, get a copy of the police report, and preserve the damaged vehicle.
