Car wrecks can have devastating consequences for victims and their families. So many different factors can affect the severity of the incident, but there are certain things all drivers should do in order to avoid causing harm. Though most drivers are well aware of safe driving practices, they may sometimes choose not to follow those practices, which can be deadly. This is what Georgia authorities believe may be to blame in a recent car wreck that sent both drivers to the hospital with serious injuries.
The wreck happened on a recent weekend evening at the entrance of a subdivision. Police say that a 17-year-old woman was driving south on a local road heading into the subdivision. Authorities allege that the young woman entered the intersection and was hit by another vehicle going east on the street she was attempting to cross over. Reports say that the second car was not visible because of another vehicle that blocked it from view.
