By any account, it was a tragic accident. In early February 2022, a head-on collision occurred along Georgia 400, resulting in the deaths of both drivers, including 32-year-old Lider Damis, and 24-year-old Zoe Robinson. Initially, investigators stated that Damis was at fault for the accident, which was something that seemed out of character to his friends and family members. A month later, police amended the accident report to list Robinson as the at-fault driver.
However, according to a report from 11 Alive, the past thirteen months have been devastating for Damis’ family as they’ve continued to hear negative comments about their loved one, even after police had cleared him of any wrongdoing in the crash. The family’s attorney stated that the man was simply out trying to earn a living for his family when the accident tragically cut his life short. For the sake of his children, the family wants the public to know the truth about what happened to their loved one.
The moments leading up to the accident were witnessed by a truck driver who was attempting to get onto Georgia 400 from Interstate 285 when he noticed a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction on the roadway. The witness stated that he attempted to follow the car and try to get the driver’s attention but it was traveling very fast. While he did not see the collision occur, he arrived on the scene quickly after and saw another motorist attempting to provide aid to the occupants of the vehicle. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene.
Head-on collisions are one of the most deadly types of accidents to occur on U.S. roadways, with the severity of the crash increased by the forward motion of both vehicles.
