Suspected drunk driving accident takes Georgia teenager's life

It is no secret that Georgia roadways can be highly dangerous, especially in traffic-laden areas or when a negligent or reckless driver is behind the wheel. A grandmother of a teenage boy knows this all too well, as she grieves the sudden, unexpected loss of her grandson's life in a suspected drunk driving accident. She recently spoke about her grandson and how much she will miss him.

The incident took place on a recent Sunday night. A 21-year-old woman was deemed responsible for the young man's death. Police say they believe she struck and killed him, then wound up in a collision at a nearby intersection soon after. Her blood alcohol content level was reportedly more than double the legal limit.

The woman is behind bars. She is charged with DUI, vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of a collision that resulted in fatality. The victim's grandmother said he loved skateboarding, drawing and playing guitar. His parents and two siblings are grieving alongside all those who knew him.

Drunk driving accidents that result in death are especially tragic because they are incidents that are easily preventable. While nothing can replace the loss of a human life, parents or other immediate family members of decedents may take comfort in knowing they can seek justice on their loved one's behalf. Georgia law often awards compensation for damages to families who file wrongful death claims following collisions caused by intoxicated drivers. An experienced personal injury attorney can help a grieving family prepare a case.
