Three-Vehicle Accident in Sandy Springs Sends Two People to the Hospital
According to a news report by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution a Sandy Springs accident has left two people injured and many unanswered questions. During the morning rush hour at the junction of the Georgia 400 and Northridge Road, a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta was attempting to turn left from the westbound lane off of Northridge Road to enter Georgia 400. As the Jetta was turning, it collided with a 2010 Honda Civic that was traveling in the eastbound lane of Northridge Road. The force of this collision pushed both vehicles into a third car, a 2015 BMW that was stopped on the Georgia 400 off-ramp. The impact pushed the BMW down an embankment where the car rested against a wall.
The driver of the Jetta was unharmed, but both drivers of the Civic and BMW were taken to the hospital and treated for injuries. Authorities investigating the accident did not provide any information on which driver may have been at fault for causing the accident. Additional information will be necessary to determine the cause of this accident, which will hopefully uncover why this accident happened and whether the accident was preventable.
Because we do not have the full story at this time, there are numerous unanswered questions that must be addressed. Such questions include, but may not be limited to, the following:
- Did the driver of the Jetta have the right of way when attempting to turn left onto the Georgia 400?
- Was the driver of the Jetta supposed to yield to the oncoming Civic?
- Was the BMW stopped on the Georgia 400 ramp due to traffic?
- Were any of the drivers involved under the influence of alcohol or drugs?
- Were any of the drivers distracted by any means (i.e., texting, posting on social media, taking pictures, talking on the phone, listening to loud music, and eating, etc.)?
- Were the drivers of the Jetta and Civic speeding?
These are only a few of the questions that investigators may ask when evaluating a three-vehicle accident like this one. The driver of the BMW may have been in a situation where he or she could not prevent being struck, placing the driver in a vulnerable position where he or she was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
How an Attorney Can Help
Attorneys, like accident investigators, will also ask numerous questions like those listed above, as it is essential to have a complete understanding of the story before moving forward with potential legal action. As such, regardless of who may have been at fault for causing this accident, it is well worth an injured person's time to at least have the situation evaluated by an experienced legal professional.
