Two Killed in Tragic Crash on Cleveland Highway in North Hall, Georgia (GA)

November 17, 2020

NORTH HALL, GA- writes that a crash occurred this week that tragically killed two people in North Hall.*

The incident took place near Clarks Bridge Road on Cleveland Highway. One of the victims, identified as a 52-year-old man from Suwannee, was heading south on the highway in a 2006 Toyota Tundra. The Toyota drifted across the center line and into northbound traffic, where it collided with a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500. 

The man from Suwannee died at the scene of the crash. The driver in the Dodge, identified as a 75-year-old man from Gainesville, was rushed to the northeast Georgia Medical Center. Reports state that the individual died a short while later from his injuries. Police do not suspect that either of the drivers was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision. Officers arrived at the scene early in the morning.

Traffic crashes create risks for people throughout the world. Most of these tragic incidents are preventable. One study suggests that there are several ways to greatly reduce the number of vehicle collisions across the globe. Better vehicles can help lower risks. Newer models have improved safety features, functioning brakes, seatbelts, airbags, tires, and lights. As older vehicles are phased out, safety will likely improve on the road. Road conditions can also lead to greater dangers. Properly maintained surfaces on the pavement, as well as other infrastructure such as foot paths and crosswalks for pedestrians  and clear signage can also reduce the number of collisions. Of course, many crashes are the result of driver behavior. Better education for drivers, medical checkups to prevent people from driving when they have impaired vision or hearing, and training in first aid for all motorists could help lower traffic risks. Legislative efforts, including mandatory seat belt and helmet laws, may also be used to lower the number of injuries and fatalities caused by car crashes. Fewer victims would die from their injuries if medical care were designed to work efficiently, and if providers had access to all road victims promptly following a crash.
