Fulton County, GA – Three Killed When Truck Crashed Head-On Into Public Tranist Bus
Fulton County, Georgia (August 17, 2023) – According to troopers, three people were killed, and several others were injured in a head-on collision with a public transit bus in Georgia.
Georgia State Patrol authorities were called about a three-vehicle crash in south Fulton County around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 8th.
According to investigators, a Ford F-150 was driving north on Stonewall Tell Road, approaching the intersection with South Fulton Parkway, when it collided with the back passenger side of a sedan attempting to turn left.
The truck then careened into the path of a Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority bus, striking it head-on.
According to the report, three people inside the F-150 died at the scene.
Their identities were not released by authorities.
Investigators said that the driver of the F-150 “disregarded a traffic control device” before the fatal crash.
Three other passengers in the truck were taken to a hospital with serious injuries. The MARTA bus driver was also seriously injured. There were no other passengers on board.
According to the report, the driver of the black sedan fled before authorities arrived.
The crash is still being investigated.
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 Accidents in Georgia
Learning that a close friend or relative has died or been seriously injured in a car accident is many people’s worst nightmare. The untimely death of a loved one is likely to cause both financial and emotional hardship.
The victim is entitled to seek compensation for any direct expenses 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 sue the at-fault driver for wrongful death.
A wrongful death lawsuit may be filed by the family to seek financial compensation for funeral expenses and emotional distress caused by their loved one’s untimely death.
When a family member dies as a result of someone else’s negligence, the last thing on your mind is probably dealing with an insurance claim or filing a wrongful death lawsuit. You must always act quickly because the statute of limitations severely limits the amount of time you have to file a wrongful death claim.
A wrongful death attorney will make certain that you are compensated 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 immediately contact a Wrongful Death Lawyer. Obtaining the compensation you are owed can be difficult without the assistance of an experienced attorney.
