Head-On Collision in Baldwin County Leaves Five People Injured

head-on collision in Baldwin County

Five people suffered injuries following an early morning head-on collision in Baldwin County. The accident happened on Monday, June 14th. According to a news report, the Georgia Highway Patrol listed drowsy driving as the cause of the head-on collision.

The report further revealed that Trooper First Class Kevin Kirby with the GSP said a Chevrolet Suburban carrying four people crossed the centerline of Highway 22 while heading into Milledgeville. The driver who was coming from Sparta fell asleep momentarily and hit a Ford Fusion in the head-on collision in Baldwin County.

Kirby said all the four people in the Suburban suffered injuries, but they were not life-threatening. The Ford Fusion driver suffered a broken leg, but the car had no passengers. The investigation into the occurrence is ongoing. Anyone with relevant information should contact the GSP’s Milledgeville office.

Motor vehicle accidents are among the leading causes of death in the United States. Traffic collisions occur daily in Georgia, and several factors contribute to it. One of them is drowsy driving, common among drivers who travel long-distance or fail to get adequate rest.

Traffic agencies advise tired persons to avoid getting behind the wheel of a car until they have gotten adequate rest. A driver who falls asleep while driving would be liable for any damages that result from a car accident. This is especially so if the other driver does not have any fault in the accident.

The compensation available to the victim covers both bodily injuries and property damages. In addition, the victim can also get compensated for emotional injuries even if they can prove that the accident affected their mental health.
