Candler County, Georgia (July 1, 2023) - After a recent accident, a sheriff's deputy in Georgia is being hailed as a hero for saving a woman from a burning car.
The sergeant can be seen in the bodycam video responding to the crash on Highway 36 on Saturday.
She jumped into action after discovering the car in dense brush off the road and on fire.
As flames erupted from the back of the car, the deputy smashed the driver's side window and pulled the woman free.
The driver seemed to have indicated that there might be another person in the vehicle, but no one else was found.
According to deputies, other passing motorists also stopped to assist the driver.
Even though multiple vehicles are frequently involved in car accidents, single-vehicle accidents happen quite often. A single-vehicle collision can occur for a variety of reasons.
You may believe that because you are the only occupant of the vehicle, you are automatically at fault and must pay for your own damages. This, however, 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 the accident was caused by the negligence of another party.
Drivers must be aware of their options in the event of a single-car collision, as well as the potential legal consequences.
A driver may be held liable for any resulting damages if their actions were the direct cause of a single-vehicle accident.
