Multiple Crashes Leave Three Tragically Killed in Macon, Georgia


November 15, 2019

MACON, GA- Wgxa.com writes that three people died in three separate crashes in Middle Georgia early this week. The first fatal crash involved a police chase in Monroe County. The pursuit led to a collision that killed a 21-year-old female student from Mercer University.*

A second deadly accident occurred a short while later in Peach County. An eighteen-year-old girl died in that collision. The victim’s friends reported shock and sadness following news of the deadly accident. 

Just hours after the second fatal accident, a third-person lost her life in a motor vehicle collision in the region. The third fatal wreck occurred in Butts County.

All three deaths happened in a span of fewer than 24 hours on Middle Georgia roadways.

When it comes to deadly car crashes, Georgia comes in fourteenth in the United States. The chances of being involved in a fatal wreck are higher in Georgia than the national average. Statistics indicate that more rural states tend to have higher rates of vehicle-related fatalities.

For individuals who wish to avoid being hurt or killed in a car crash, it is essential to remember one of the best things to do is buckle up every time you are in a car. Seatbelt usage is higher in Georgia than the average in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that 92 percent of Georgians are buckling up. Seatbelts and child restraints cut down on the risk of severe injury and death by around 50 percent.  Of course, avoiding drunk, drowsy, and distracted driving also cuts a person’s risk of being in a deadly collision.
