8 Month Old Child Killed in Wreck on I-20 Liberty Road Exit Ramp in Villa Rica

At-Fault Driver Facing Multiple Charges

An 8-month-old child was killed and a 12-year-old child was airlifted when a car slammed into the back of their vehicle on the I-20 Liberty Road Exit Ramp.  Witnesses described the at-fault driver’s behavior as dangerous noting that he was seen driving out of control on I-20 as far back as Douglasville.  The end result of this driver’s reckless behavior was tragic, to say the least.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the injured children.  Senseless devastation causing behavior cannot and will not be tolerated.

It is not clear what, if any, mind-altering substances the at-fault driver was on at the time of the wreck.  The Georgia State Patrol and other law enforcement officials are still investigating the matter.  The at-fault driver will likely face several serious charges for his behavior and the ensuing aftermath.

There are many angles of this situation that warrant investigation.  Where was the at-fault driver coming from?  Had he been at a bar or restaurant?  If so, was he openly inebriated in that establishment?  Restaurant and bar owners can be held liable for allowing intoxicated people to leave their premises if the server recognized the inebriation and continued serving the patron.

There is nothing in the world that can replace that young life that was taken from us.  These situations are beyond difficult to comprehend.  As personal injury lawyers, our business is helping those through what could be the worst moment of their lives.  Sometimes our clients have lost a loved one.  Other times, they have simply lost the ability to live at the same level of health they once lived.  We become part of the affected families and vice versa.  It is the toughest and best job in the world.
