Accident Occurs on the Mike Padgett Highway in Augusta, Georgia


August 24, 2019

AUGUSTA, GA – According to an online news report at wrdw.com, lanes have opened up once again on the Mike Padgett Highway earlier this week.*  

The accident occurred in the early morning hours on Mike Padgett Highway located at Lumpkin Road.   Injuries were reported and emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene of the accident.  Two lanes of the highway were required to be shut down due to the crash, but they have since been reopened to traffic.  

There are no further details on the accident at this time.  The crash remains under investigation by the local police.

An unexpected accident can result in painful injuries that can affect your life for weeks if not years to come.  The following are the most common injuries that occur in Georgia automobile accidents:

  • Whiplash.  This is a soft tissue injury to the neck where the impact of an accident causes the head to move in a whip-like fashion.  This type of injury can be serious and lead to significant pain and discomfort.

  • Cuts and scrapes.  You may receive cuts from the impact of an accident, which can be painful as well as poses a risk of infection.

  • Injuries to the head.  Traumatic brain injuries that occur as a result of an accident can lead to a lifetime of serious complications and even death.  

  • Bone fractures.  Due to the impact of an accident, even if it does not involve high speeds, it can cause bone fractures to several areas of the body, including the arms, spine, legs, ribs, shoulders, and hips.

  • Internal bleeding.  While it is common to receive cuts and scrapes in an accident, internal bleeding can happen as well, which if not treated, can be deadly.

  • Knee trauma.  The impact of an accident can cause a person’s knees to hit into the dashboard, resulting in damage to one’s knee caps and ligaments.
