I-20 in Georgia closed after multi-car accident

The Georgia State Police had to shut down a portion of Interstate 20 recently. Troopers were conducting an investigation into a multi-car accident that ended the life of one person and injured others. Wet roads are said to have been a factor in the crash.

The accident began when the driver of a Jeep lost control and smacked into a guardrail. As an Expedition came upon the Jeep, it maneuvered to avoid hitting the Jeep and hit the median instead. When it hit the median, it flipped over and ended up on the other side of the Interstate and collided with a Nissan. Another car ran off the road avoiding that collision.

In the meantime, another motorist that stopped to provide assistance to the driver of the Jeep was hit by a Hyundai. When all of the vehicles finally came to a stop, several people had been injured. The female passenger in the Expedition was fatally injured in the crash. The driver and a second passenger in the Expedition were taken to the hospital with injuries. The pedestrian and the Nissan driver were also injured and taken to an area hospital for treatment.

As the Georgia State Police completes its investigation into this complex car accident, the family of the deceased woman is left to deal with her sudden death. The family retains the right to file a wrongful death claim in connection with her death. In this case, it may be helpful for her family and the injured parties to wait for the results of the official investigation in order to have a better understanding of who is deemed responsible for the accident.
