totalled black car
Two people were killed after a fatal accident involving a speeding car. According to Fox News, the May 23 incident involving four cars is thought to be connected to a fleeing Honda Accord travelling on Georgia’s state Highway 17. According to Georgia State Police, a trooper first reported and attempted to stop a northbound vehicle travelling at 105 mph at around 2.20 p.m. The driver fled from Stephens County on state highway 365 south into Habersham County, after which the trooper lost sight of the vehicle. Approximately 20 minutes later, police reported a southbound Honda Accord on highway 365 which had rear ended a Toyota Tacoma. The impact caused the Tacoma to spin out, strike the median and overturn multiple times. The driver of the Tacoma did not survive the impact despite wearing a seatbelt. The second passenger in the Tacoma was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle, resulting in fatal injuries. According to police reports, the Honda Accord then struck a Toyota Tundra, resulting in minor damage. A fourth car, a northbound Honda CRV on SR 365, was struck by the Tacoma’s detached tire and wheel. There were no further injuries reported. According to state police, charges against the Honda Accord’s driver are now pending.
