Traffic accidents often lead to police investigations. Many times, the investigations are intended to identify causal factors in a collision, as well as who may or may not have been responsible for the crash. When citations are issued against a driver in Georgia, or criminal charges filed, the person accused may increase chances of a positive outcome by retaining legal assistance to build a strong criminal defense.
An accident that some have characterized as bizarre occurred in January. A 36-year-old woman has already been cited by a Georgia patrolman for the incident. A criminal investigation regarding other aspects of the crash remains ongoing at this time.
Apparently, the woman had been driving along the road while a man outside the vehicle was hanging on to the trunk of her car. Authorities say that she failed to remain in the proper lane. The driver is said to have overcorrected her steering, causing the man to lose his grip on the trunk and propelling him into a nearby fence. Moments later, another vehicle is said to have smashed into the woman’s car, and several people reportedly suffered injuries in the crash.
Though the results of the current investigation remain to be seen, it has been suggested that the woman and man had engaged in an argument at another location prior to the incident. She has been cited for reckless driving and several other offenses. Anyone facing similar situations in Georgia is able to gather evidence and provide information to the court through the voice of an experienced attorney in order to present a solid criminal defense against any pending charges.
