Banks County, Georgia (June 14, 2023) - Two people were killed in a single-vehicle rollover accident in Banks County early Wednesday.
Around 6:25 a.m., the accident occurred on GA 15/US Highway 441 at Banks Road, about two miles north of Banks Crossing in Commerce.
A 36-year-old from Warner Robins was driving an Audi A3 south on Highway 441, according to the Georgia State Patrol.
The car ran off the road in a curve. It went into the median and then down an embankment, where it collided with the ditch bottom and overturned.
Both the driver and the passenger were thrown from the vehicle. They were taken from the scene to a nearby hospital, where they both passed away from their injuries.
State troopers who were investigating the crash said that both victims were not wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident.
For more than two hours, the northbound lanes of Highway 441 near the crash site were closed while troopers investigated and crews cleared the wreckage.
Despite the fact that multiple vehicles are frequently involved in car accidents, single-vehicle accidents occur quite often. A single-vehicle collision can happen for several reasons.
If you are the sole occupant of the vehicle, you may believe you are automatically at fault and must pay for your own damages. However, this is not always the case. Even if your vehicle was the only one involved in the accident, you may be able to seek compensation if another party's negligence caused the accident.
Drivers must be aware of the various options available to them in the event of a single-car collision, as well as the potential legal ramifications.
If a driver's actions were the direct cause of a single-vehicle accident, they may be held liable for any resulting damages.
Our team of knowledgeable Car Accident Attorneys may be able to assist you with your claim following a single-vehicle accident.
If you were involved in a single-vehicle collision and believe that someone else's carelessness or negligence was to blame, you may be entitled to compensation.
Single-vehicle collisions can be difficult to handle, especially if another driver is at fault. You will need the assistance of an attorney to prove that another motorist or other entity was at fault for your car accident.
Accidents involving only one vehicle can be fatal as well. The absence of another vehicle does not lessen the seriousness of the accident.
If a single-vehicle accident kills someone, the family of the deceased driver may be able to hire a Wrongful Death Attorney to help them with their claim if they believe the crash was caused by the negligence of another party.
