Two Killed in Tragic Redmond Circle Wreck in Gerogia
GEORGIA- Coosavalleynews.com writes that two people died in a crash on Redmond Circle this week. The incident took place when a northbound Ford F-350 veered across the center line and collided with a southbound Infinity. The head-on wreck caused the Infinity to roll over and catch fire.*
One person was reportedly trapped in the vehicle. The victims were identified as a 52-year-old woman and that woman’s eighteen-year-old son. The woman’s 49-year-old husband was injured in the crash as well and was transported to a nearby hospital. A dog in the car also died as a result of the crash. The 36-year-old driver from the F-350 did not suffer any injuries in the deadly collision. Police reports indicate that charges are pending. The investigation is still being carried out. The incident caused the lanes to close for a number of hours while crews worked at the scene.
Head-on collisions are terrifying occurrences. These crashes are often severe, and in many cases, result in death. When it comes to reducing the risks presented by head-on impacts, the most important thing a driver can do is slow down. The speed at which vehicles are traveling plays an important part in determining the severity of a crash. Studies have been completed on pedestrian crashes that indicated that cars in high pedestrian traffic areas should not be traveling above twenty-miles-per-hour. Once cars are traveling at a higher speed, the risk of death for pedestrians begins to increase.
When it comes to head-on collisions, the danger of a fatality increases at about 43-miles-per-hour. Safety experts state that roads with high-speed limits that are not divided by barriers are dangerous.
