Getting a flat tire can be a considerable inconvenience, and many travelers have had to stop in order to change a tire. Unfortunately, having to stop on the side of the road can be a dangerous action, and other drivers could pose a threat. If another driver is impaired, an individual stopped on the side of the road could potentially become the victim of an accident caused by a drunk driver.
Driving under the influence is an action that many individuals will avoid throughout their lives. However, there are also many who make the wrong decision to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. As a result, an accident caused by a drunk driver is not as uncommon as many people would hope. Such an accident could happen to anyone, and individuals who are involved could be seriously injured.
The dangers of drinking and driving are well-known. As a result, responsible drivers make sure that they have a designated driver if they are going to consume alcohol. Regardless of the protections a driver might put in place to preserve his or her safety as well as the safety of others, they will not protect the individual from others who have chosen to drink and drive. Unfortunately, one man lost in life in Georgia as a result of an accident caused by an alleged drunk driver.
Charges have recently been filed against a man in connection with an auto accident that occurred last February in Georgia. Along with a felony vehicular homicide charge, the driver has also been charged with the misdemeanors of driving too fast for conditions and driving under the influence.

Losing a beloved family member is a terrible experience. If the loved one is a child, the grief may only be compounded. The Georgia parents of the 11-year-old boy who was a victim of an accident caused by a drunk driver may spend years trying to put the pieces of their life back together.
