The Daily Citizen reported that a car accident occurring in Georgia yesterday injured eight people.
23 year old Tabetha Nolasco-Sanchez of Chatsworth was coming from Boyles Mill Road in her Ford Expedition. She was driving with five passengers in her car. Georgia State Patrol trooper E. Tommy Bonaparte said she failed to look both directions and didn’t yield to a Plymouth Voyager. The Voyager was on Beaverdale Road that crossed Nolasco-Sanchez’s path with eight people inside.
The driver of the Voyager, Lorie Crider, attempted to swerve before the van flipped on its top and then landed in a grassy ditch.
The good news is that no one was seriously injured in this car crash. However, eight people were injured and four were taken by ambulance.
A Clerk at Uncle Buck’s General Store, Syble Page, “said she heard a loud bang when the collision occurred about 1:30 p.m.” She called 911 but did not see the car crash.
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.
