Injury Reported in Crash on US 78 in Between, Georgia


September 30, 2018

BETWEEN, GA- The waltontribune.com reports that a person was injured in a vehicle collision that took place on U.S. 78 on Tuesday, September 25, 2018. The collision led to U.S. 78’s westbound lanes being closed.*

The crash occurred where U.S. 78 meets New Hope Church Road. 

According to forbes.com, on average, drivers will be involved in a car crash once every 17.9 years. 

Based on statistics, its likely that any driver who gets their license at 16 will be in a crash by the time they are 34 years old. Based on the numbers, there is a good chance that over a lifetime, the average driver will be in about 3 or 4 crashes. 

Fortunately, most of these crashes are minor and will not result in fatalities and may not even result in injuries. In most cases though, they will be expensive. When injuries are involved, the costs are much higher because of the high costs of medical care. 

Of course, it is possible to reduce your chances of being in car accidents. One of the best ways to increase your safety is by never driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. About one-third of all traffic accidents are caused by drunk drivers. Another way to stay safe is to avoid driving on Saturday and Sunday between 12 a.m. and 3 a.m. Many of these crashes are caused by drunk driving. Avoid looking at your phone while driving. Distracted driving, especially from cell phones, causes thousands of deaths every year. It is also important to always follow the speed limit and avoid driving on congested roads.
