Drivers are aware that road travel on Georgia highways can be a dangerous proposition. However, most of us go about our days in the knowledge that statistics are on our side. We know that car accidents can and do take place, but operate under the belief that such events will not happen to us. When we, or someone we love, is injured in a car accident, the reality of the dangers of road travel come crashing in.
This may be the case for the families of those involved in a recent wreck on Highway 15 in Homer. Just before noon on a recent Saturday morning, traffic was moving along the highway when one driver apparently lost control of of her vehicle, a Nissan Altima. She left the road to the left side, then tried to correct by swerving to the right. That led to a total loss of control of the vehicle, which crossed back over the roadway, went over the median and crossed two lanes of oncoming traffic before a collision took place.
