Crash Causes Injuries on Kenney Field Drive in Boothbay Harbor, Georgia (GA)

October 09, 2020

BOOTHBAY, GA- writes that an accident occurred this week in the mid-afternoon on Kenney Field Drive. Reports state that a 76-year-old woman from Boothbay Harbor was heading southbound in a 2011 Chevy Malibu when she struck the truck's rear.*

The truck, which was carrying lumber, was parked on the roadside with four-way flashers activated at the time of the crash. The truck's driver, a 59-year-old man, was tightening the straps when the other driver struck the rear of his vehicle. According to police, the truck was partially in the road and partially out of the road when the car collided with its rear. The woman in the car sustained injuries in the collision. Responders transported her to the Miles Memorial Hospital which is located in Damariscotta. Images from the scene show that the Chevrolet suffered severe front-end damage, including its windshield, which was crushed in the impact.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, forward collision warning systems effectively reduce crashes. These systems can monitor the speed of a vehicle concerning the speed of other nearby vehicles. If a driver gets too close to the back of another car, the system warns the driver. Forward collision warning systems are not able to stop the car on their own. These systems do work to get the attention of an inattentive motorist so that that person can apply the brakes. Automatic emergency braking systems will work similarly to forward collision warning systems in that they first issue an alert when drivers are getting too close to another vehicle. If the driver still fails to react, emergency braking systems will slow the vehicle. Such features effectively reduce the severity of crashes and are able to avoid some rear-end collisions.
