Investigations Continue In Deadly Georgia Crash

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 14, 2020 | 0 Comments

Investigations in Cherokee County continue after what appeared to be a rollover crash resulted in the death of the driver and the injury of a young girl. Deputies responded to the accident scene yesterday early in the afternoon. The incident occurred near I-575, and the vehicle was found in the woods off the side of the interstate.

Right now, no other details have been released. Officers are still working to determine what happened and believe that another vehicle may have been involved.

As a Georgia DUI Lawyer, I will outline the correlation between accidents and driving under the influence in Georgia. Although there are no facts to tie this accident to DUI in Georgia as of right now - many accidents end up being associated with suspected DUI driving.

Accidents and Driving Under the Influence in Georgia

Accidents and DUIs commonly are charged together. If a car accident occurs alongside a DUI arrest, then the accident can actually be used to support the DUI charge.

The accident itself may in fact demonstrate that the accused driver was less safe to drive.

Penalties for DUI in Georgia are serious. However, when an accident is involved, the Georgia DUI Penalties are further exaggerated. This is true if there are injuries property damage.

There is also the risk of other charges if you get into an accident while accused of DUI. This can also heighten the penalties including a lengthier suspension of an accused driver's Georgia Driver's License.
