Clayton County, Georgia (August 8, 2023) – A 21-year-old, 18-year-old, and 12-year-old were among four people who died in the July 28th fiery crash on Interstate 285. 

Three of the victim’s were siblings and their dog was also killed in the accident. 

It occurred shortly after 1 a.m. Clayton County police said Friday, July 28, on Interstate 75 south in Clayton County, just before the exit to Interstate 285 eastbound.

An investigation revealed that a car carrying four people was speeding on the interstate when it collided with another vehicle. According to police, the car then flipped and collided with a tree before catching fire.

Two people were thrown from the vehicle, and two others died in the fire. Three of the victims were later identified as siblings: a 21-year-old, an 18-year-old, and a 12-year-old.

The driver of the other vehicle was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. 

Authorities stated that family members of the deceased have been notified. The fourth victim, a female, has not yet been identified.

Police are still investigating why the driver was speeding at the time of 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.


Fatal Auto Accident in Georgia

Many people’s worst nightmare is learning that a close friend or relative has died or been seriously injured in a car accident. A loved one’s untimely death is likely to cause financial and emotional hardship.

If a person is injured in a car accident due to the negligence of another driver, they have the legal right to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation. They are entitled to compensation for any direct costs incurred as a result of the accident.

If the accident victim dies as a result of their injuries, the victim’s surviving family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

The family may file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek financial compensation for funeral costs and emotional distress caused by their loved one’s untimely death.

When a family member dies as a result of someone else’s negligence, dealing with an insurance claim or filing a wrongful death lawsuit is probably the last thing on your mind. Because the statute of limitations severely limits the amount of time you have to file a wrongful death claim, you must always act quickly.

A wrongful death attorney will ensure that you receive compensation for the following:

  • Funeral and Burial Expenses
  • Medical Expenses
  • Loss of Future Income
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Lost Wages
  • Emotional Trauma

If a loved one was killed in a car accident, you should contact a Wrongful Death Lawyer right away. Without the assistance of an experienced attorney, obtaining the compensation you are owed can be difficult.
