Tragic Car Crash in Georgia Kills Two

Comments Off

The Daily Citizen reported on a car accident that occurred on Tibbs Bridge Road in Georgia this past Thursday.

Harley Long, 58 and Lethia Singleton, 78 both were killed in this two-vehicle car crash. A spokesman said that Whitefield 911 received the call about this fatal car accident at 3:18 p.m. Harley Long was pronounced dead at Hamilton Medical Center at 4 p.m., the Whitefield County Coroner Bobbie Dixon said.

Lethia Singleton died later that Thursday evening.

“Others involved in the wreck were airlifted to Chattanooga hospital, a Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman said. Officials would not say how many were involved in the wreck or if the two who were killed were in separate vehicles.”

Investigation is ongoing for tragic car accident. Our thoughts are with both families.

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.
