Commerce, GA – Man Dies in Three-Vehicle Accident

Commerce, GA (December 21, 2022) – A man from Watkinsville died after being involved in a three-vehicle accident on Wednesday, December 21 in Commerce, Georgia. 

According to the Georgia State Patrol, a 71 year-old-man died when his green 2011 Honda CRV collided head-on with a Ford U-Haul Box Truck. 

The investigation conducted by the Georgia State Patrol found that the CRV was following closely behind a black Chevrolet Tahoe driven by a 37 year-old woman, of Commerce, while it was traveling southbound on Homer Road in Jackson County.

Georgia State Patrol said that the Tahoe slowed to a stop to make a left turn and the CRV crossed over the double yellow line to pass the Tahoe then swerved, striking the Tahoe’s driver side rear before striking the Box Truck head-on.

The CRV flipped over sliding on its roof. 

The 71 year-old driver of the CRV was pronounced dead at the scene.


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.


Truck Accidents in Georgia

Due to the massive size and weight of these vehicles, accidents involving commercial vehicles can easily cause life-threatening injuries and trauma to everyone involved.

If you or someone you care about was involved in a truck accident, it is critical that you contact an experienced attorney who can help you file a claim for compensation.

Filing a claim for compensation after being involved in a truck accident can be very difficult. If an accident occurs, drivers, trucking companies, the company that loaded the freight, or truck or tire manufacturers could all be held liable depending on the circumstances of the accident.  Did the driver of a truck fall asleep or did the steering fail when it veered into your lane? Was the driver exhausted from drugs, alcohol, or working too many hours? Is it possible that a truck part failed due to a flaw in its design or because it was not properly maintained?

When there could be multiple parties at fault, how do you calculate how much the accident will cost you in future medical bills and lost wages?

All of these questions can be answered by an experienced Truck Accident Lawyer. It can be difficult to understand how the system works and how to obtain the best settlement to compensate for your losses without the assistance of an accident lawyer.
