Rome, GA (July 21, 2021) – On Wednesday afternoon, July 21, a car crash with injuries occurred at an intersection in Rome.
According to Floyd County Police, the accident happened at the intersection of GA-293 and Moran Lake Road. A burgundy pickup truck was traveling in the area when it suddenly drove through the intersection, colliding with a gray Fiat. The grey Fiat was badly damaged as a result of the accident.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. One person was injured in the accident, though their condition is not known at this time.
Traffic was backed up in the area in both lanes until police were able to clear the scene. This led to delays at the intersection for some time.
The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
Car Accidents in Georgia
Hundreds of thousands of people are injured due to car accidents in Georgia every single year. The unfortunate reality is that many of these accidents can be prevented but continue to occur due to the recklessness of others. Car accidents happen in many different areas but intersections are some of the most common. In just one recent year’s time in the U.S., over 2.5 million intersection accidents occurred due to negligent acts. Some of the most common reasons for car accidents at intersections include driver distractions, drunk driving, speeding, and more. If you have been hurt in a car accident and wonder where you can turn, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
