Forsyth County, Georgia (July 28, 2023) - According to Georgia deputies, a husband, and wife in their 90s were killed when their car skidded off the road and crashed.
Deputies responded around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, July 27, after receiving multiple 911 calls about the wreck in Forsyth County.
When they arrived, they discovered the couple dead in the car.
Investigators believe the 91-year-old woman was driving in her Cadillac XT4 with her husband when she began to veer off the road.
She overcorrected, causing the SUV to veer off the road and flip. Their vehicle was discovered overturned at the top of an embankment.
Her 91-year-old husband was also killed in the accident.
Authorities are still investigating the cause of the single-vehicle accident.
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, 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.

If you were in a single-vehicle collision and believe it was caused by someone else's carelessness or negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
Single-vehicle collisions can be complicated, especially if another driver is at fault. To prove that another motorist or other entity was at fault for your car accident, you will need the assistance of an attorney.
Accidents involving only one vehicle can also be fatal. The absence of another vehicle does not mitigate the severity of the crash.
