2 women seriously injured in head-on collision

Around noon on Dec. 25, the Georgia State Patrol was on the scene of a car accident that occurred close to the Grady, Mitchell County Line. A 40-year-old woman and her 81-year-old mother suffered serious but undisclosed injuries in the crash, and responders transported the women to a Thomasville hospital.

Troopers determined that the car the younger woman was driving had been traveling southbound on GA 112. As she planned to make a left turn onto GA 262, she stopped to yield to northbound traffic. A 27-year-old man driving north on GA 112 then crossed over the road's centerline, plowing head-on into the women's vehicle.

The male driver suffered minor injuries in the accident and received treatment at a Camilla hospital. He was later booked into the Mitchell County Jail and charged with driving under the influence, serious injury by a vehicle, failure to maintain a lane, no license and no insurance.

When someone suffers serious bodily injury in a car accident, they might consider seeking compensation for their damages. For example, there may be medical expenses that mount quickly, lost wages from missed time at work and ongoing pain and suffering.

A personal injury attorney could help car accident victims with obtaining accident reports and witness statements from the authorities. He or she may then assist victims in pursuing a civil lawsuit. The proceedings in a civil court action are handled separately from any criminal or misdemeanor charges the defendant faces, and the outcome in one court has nothing to do with the case heard in the other court action.
