Young Lives Lost Following an Atlanta Car Accident That May Have Involved Street Racing


June 05, 2015

Any automobile accident has the potential to be devastating. However, when children are involved, and suffer severe injuries or death, the situation becomes much more emotionally painful and difficult to overcome. There are many accidents where all vehicles involved have been following traffic laws, and the accident is just an unfortunate situation of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. In more tragic situations, serious traffic violations, such as street racing, contribute to an accident that most certainly could have been prevented. Continue reading to learn more.

Street Racing Proves to Be Dangerous for Atlanta Family

Street racing has become a growing problem all across the United States, and many innocent people, including children, have lost their lives as a result. Just last month, three children passed away after the vehicle driven by their mother was struck by two cars traveling at more than 100 miles per hour. According to the news report, two of the young children died shortly after the accident, and the third child died a week following the accident. The mother survived, but sustained injuries.

The individuals involved in causing the accident are thought to have been illegally street racing. They both face multiple criminal charges, but no punishment can bring back the lives of the three innocent children who were killed. Sometimes these types of unfortunate tragedies occur, and it is important for all of us to take steps to prevent such accidents from happening in the future.

Street racing is only one type of illegal and perilous conduct on the roadways that leads to heartbreaking accidents like the one discussed above, but it proves to be an example of how many accidents can, in fact, be prevented. Additional examples of illegal conduct that can result in an accident include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
  • Driving while texting;
  • Driving without lights on at night; and
  • Failing to stop at red lights and stop signs.

When injuries and death result from accidents involving any type of illegal conduct, the innocent victims and their families should rightfully seek compensation to account for their suffering. Many people shy away from speaking with an attorney for a variety of reasons that are quite understandable. However, when it comes to injuries that resulted from an accident caused by another person or party's negligent and, in some cases, criminal conduct, an attorney can be a true advocate who represents your rights and interests.
