83 Year Old Died After Car Crash in Georgia

Comments Off

According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC), Charles Daniels was driving a 1993 Toyota pickup Friday morning.

While he turned left off North Crestview Drive on to Grayson Parkway near Snellville, he drove in front of an on-coming 2007 Jeep.

Daniels was 83 years old from Grayson, Georgia. He died from injuries sustained from this tragic car accident.

Investigators have said that Daniels failed to yield and was at fault. AJC says that the other driver’s name has not been released yet.

Do you know what do to if you are in a car accident? As our past post discussed, here is what you need to know if you are in a car accident:

Immediately call the police. When the police arrive, they know exactly what to do. The police will also create a police report after interviewing all witnesses and determining who is at fault.

Make sure everyone else is safe.

Gather information. You must get the other driver’s information such as the vehicle’s VIN number, insurance information, and license plate number.

Seek medical attention/help. Car accidents can cause serious injuries, even injuries that do not arise until much later after the car accident. It is important to see a doctor to evaluate your condition.

If you have a camera, take pictures of the cars involved in the accident.

Call/seek an attorney.

According to Ezine articles, there are several things you MUST not do after you are in a car accident:

Admit fault; leave the scene; wait for insurance companies to contact you or take too much time to call an attorney; sign anything without knowing what the papers say or means.
