Interstate 85 crash leaves 1 dead, 1 injured

Around 6:30 am on April 28, a 2016 Chevrolet Impala traveling south on Interstate 85 in Georgia near Atlanta struck the rear of a Ford passenger car that was stopped on the east shoulder and partially jutting into the driving lane. The impact sent the front of the Ford into the concrete median, about 53 feet away, after which it continued to travel for another 82 feet.

The passenger of the Ford, a 63-year-old woman, was fatally injured in the crash. The Impala traveled south on I-85 for approximately 175 feet before coming to a stop and was found facing north on the southbound lane. The driver was sent to Atlanta Medical Center for the treatment of undisclosed injuries.

Unfortunately,fatal car accidents are a common occurrence across the United States, both on interstate highways like this one as well as in urban areas and on rural roadways. In recent years, the number of deadly car crashes has approached 40,000, despite advances in motor vehicle safety technology.

In addition to the grief over the sudden loss of a loved one as well as the loss of companionship, the surviving family members of people who have lost their lives in these types of accidents often have to deal with the resulting adverse financial ramifications. In many cases, the decedent was the family breadwinner or contributed in other ways to the household budget. If it can be determined that the accident was caused by the negligence of another motorist, an attorney could help the survivors seek appropriate compensation for their losses.
