A crash between an 18-wheeler and a passenger car in Thomson in late September killed two kids on impact. The 16-year-old driver of that vehicle died the following day. Another passenger in the car, the decedents' mother, had been hospitalized since the crash recovering from life-threatening injuries. Doctors released her to go home to her family late last week though.
Car crashes can be traumatic for anyone involved. Whether it's a rear-end or head-on collision, victims can suffer injuries ranging from minor to fatal.

If someone is climbing Brasstown Bald or riding fast watercraft off Little Tybee Island, he or she may think that driving around the Peach State is not the riskiest activity one could find. But the roads in Georgia can be treacherous, and some drivers end up liable for the injury and damage that they caused through recklessness or negligence.
