The Georgia State Patrol say that charges are likely to be filed against the driver of a Lincoln Aviator involved in a fatal accident in Laurens County on the evening of Nov. 25.

Distracted driving on the rise during holiday season

A survey from the app-based insurer Root Insurance shows that one-third of Americans who shop on mobile devices have done so while behind the wheel.

Tips to avoid injury or death on the road

Georgia residents and others who are 44 or younger are most likely to die because of an unintended injury. This is according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

For instance, individuals should be sure to never drive while impaired by alcohol or any other substance.
