Tragic Fatal Crash Reported on Highway 19 in Lee County, Georgia

December 23, 2019

LEE COUNTY, GA- writes that a driver traveling on Highway 19 earlier this week hit the back of a tractor-trailer. The driver, a 63-year-old man from Albany, was operating a pickup truck when he struck the larger vehicle. The man died at the scene of the incident. The man operating the tractor-trailer also suffered injuries in the crash.*

The state police are still carrying out the investigation into the crash.

Rear-end accidents often occur and lead to minimal damage to the vehicles and no severe injuries. Specifically, many rear-end accidents are nothing but fender benders, and yet about 1,700 people die in more serious rear-end crashes across the country on an annual basis. Human errors are the leading cause of rear-end collisions. 

Technology currently exists that could drastically cut down on the number of these incidents. Crash avoidance systems use cameras and radar to identify risks in the road and to either alert the driver of the need to slow down, or to actually break themselves. Many drivers are apprehensive about their cars applying the brakes automatically or performing other driving functions typically reserved for human vehicle operators. However, studies indicate that statistically, the majority of rear-end accidents could be avoided with currently available vehicle safety technology.
