Macon, GA – Two Teens in Critical Condition After Deputy Chase in Stolen Vehicle
Macon, Georgia (August 30, 2023) – Two teenagers were critically injured during a vehicle chase with deputies.
According to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, the incident began shortly after 1 a.m., when patrol deputies and K-9 units were dispatched to the intersection of Womack Street and Emery Highway.
Deputies observed two male suspects getting into a stolen vehicle at the Exxon Gas Station on Emery Highway.
When deputies attempted to contact the vehicle, it sped away down Coliseum Drive toward downtown.
The deputies pursued the suspects as they sped towards Broadway, where the teens attempted to hit the deputy’s vehicle several times.
Deputies used an immobilization technique on the suspect’s vehicle, which then lost control, hit the curb, flipped over, and crashed into a power pole, a fire hydrant, and a fence on the roadside.
The driver, a 16-year-old boy, was identified and is in stable but critical condition. The 15-year-old passenger is in critical condition.
The Georgia State Patrol is still investigating the accident.
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
Single Vehicle Accidents in Georgia
Single-vehicle accidents occur when only one vehicle and one driver are involved. A single-car accident usually occurs when a car collides with another object or is pushed off the road.
A single-vehicle collision can be extremely dangerous, if not fatal, even in the absence of other vehicles.
Numerous legal issues arise in single-vehicle collisions. Even when only one vehicle is involved in the accident, it can be difficult to determine who was at fault.
Accidents involving a single vehicle can occur for any of the following reasons:
-Drivers may struggle to maintain control of their vehicles on bad roads, increasing the likelihood of an accident. Poor road conditions include seams, potholes, and construction materials left on the ground. If poor road conditions contributed to your accident, the person or group in charge of the problem may face legal consequences.
-Even if another driver’s vehicle did not collide directly with yours, they may be held liable for the accident. If the other driver was careless and caused your car to veer off the road, any damages or injuries you sustain may be their fault.
-Driving a car can be difficult due to mechanical issues. The driver may be killed if the car’s brakes, steering columns, tires, wipers, or airbags fail. Serious injuries can occur when people’s cars fail to function properly.
These are just a few of the many possible outcomes of a single-car accident where the driver is not at fault.
