car accident damaged windshield
Authorities are still trying to determine why an off-duty police officer lost control of his vehicle, resulting in a deadly head-on crash in Barrow County, just south of Auburn. The crash occurred on Saturday morning, just after midnight, when the 25-year-old off-duty officer’s silver Ford Mustang traveled into oncoming traffic on Carl-Midway Road. The car struck a black Toyota Corolla driven by a 28-year-old man. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. Two women and a man in the Mustang were seriously injured, as was a male passenger in the Corolla. All four passengers were transported to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment. A head-on collision occurs when the front of one vehicle collides with the front of another vehicle. This type of accident is relatively rare — only accounting for about 2 percent of motor vehicle collisions occurring on U.S. roadways. However, head-on collisions account for about 10 percent of all traffic fatalities, making this a particularly deadly type of collision. The forward motion of both vehicles at the time of the collision increases the force of the accident, often resulting in more serious injuries for the occupants of the vehicles. If you have been injured in a head-on collision or have lost a loved one as the result of this type of accident, an experienced personal injury attorney from Cambre & Associates LLC can tell you about the process of obtaining compensation for the expenses and psychological impacts of your injury through a personal injury lawsuit. This is a legal claim filed in civil court that seeks to prove who was at fault of the accident that caused your injuries, as well as to show the expenses and impacts you have incurred.
