Georgia Pedestrian Fatally Struck by DUI Driver

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers. A 2006 study by the NHTSA estimated that there is one drunk driving fatality in the United States every 30 minutes.

 

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

 

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a 24-year-old woman was charged with first-degree vehicular homicide, DUI and reckless driving after she struck and killed a 32-year-old pedestrian on Interstate 285. The accident occurred in the early morning hours when the driver drifted into the emergency lane and continued driving. A passenger was also injured in the accident.
