Two Dead in Fiery Wrong-Way Accident in Forsyth County

atlanta-car crash

Two people lost their lives following a wrong-way accident in Forsyth County. The accident occurred during the early hours of Sunday, May 30th. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said one of the drivers drove over 100 mph down the wrong way on GA-400.

According to the sheriff’s office, their 911 center received several calls on the occurrence at about 1:30 a.m. The reports revealed a driver was going south on the northbound lane of GA-400. Before responding deputies could intercept the male driver, he collided head-on with a vehicle.

The wrong-way accident in Forsyth County happened between the Majors Road overpass and the Shiloh Road overpass. The sheriff’s office said one of the vehicles burst into flames. The investigators later identified the wrong-way driver as Silas Brown, 35. The Atlanta resident drove an Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

The police identified the victim in the other vehicle as Tarik Kindell, a 22-year-old Cumming resident. He drove a Lexus IS250. The sheriff’s office said both men died at the scene. The investigation is ongoing.

A wrong-way driver often causes a head-on collision. This is because both drivers are traveling in opposite directions and might be unable to avoid each other. In accidents of this nature, liability is quite clear, as the driver going the wrong way is usually the fault party.

Thus, a victim of a wrong-way accident can file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit to get compensation. The compensation covers medical expenses, both past, current, and future, and lost wages.

The victim can also get compensated for any property damage, including vehicle repairs and emotional injuries. The latter include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and pain and suffering.
