Fourth Fatal Car Accident in Barrow County, Georgia in less than One Month

Comments Off

AccessNorthGA.com reported that a car accident occurring in Barrow County, Georgia killed on woman and injured another.

The victim was traveling south on Barber Creek Road on Monday after 5 p.m. when her car was struck by another car traveling west on Georgia Highway 316.

Names have not been released at this time. Authorities report that the cause of the car accident is still unknown.

There were stop signs, but no traffic lights at the intersection of Georgia Highway 316 and Barber Creek Road.

This car accident “marks the fourth fatal accident in Barrow County in less than a month.”

I will update this page if names are released.

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.
