Fort Valley, GA – Woman Killed in Seven-Vehicle Pileup Crash Involving a Tractor-Trailer

Fort Valley, Georgia (July 17, 2023) – A total of seven vehicles were involved in a fatal crash in Peach County this weekend. 

According to the Georgia State Patrol, the crash occurred near mile marker 149 on I-75 northbound in Peach County.

Northbound traffic came to a halt around 10:15 p.m. Saturday night due to road maintenance and lane closures. According to troopers, this is when a tractor-trailer was unable to stop and collided with several vehicles.

The driver of the first vehicle hit by the truck died on the scene. Georgia State Patrol identified the victim as a 57-year-old woman from Atlanta, GA. 

The accident is still under investigation. 


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 sheer size and weight of these vehicles, tractor-trailer accidents can result in catastrophic injury and trauma.

If you or someone you care about was involved in a commercial truck accident, you should contact an experienced Truck Accident Attorney to help you with your claim.

Truck accidents can be difficult to comprehend. Drivers, trucking companies, the company that loaded the freight, and truck or tire manufacturers could all potentially be liable for 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?

Truck accident lawyers excel at resolving these issues. 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.
