Two Teen Pedestrians Killed by DUI Driver in Georgia
Three families are suffering following a pedestrian collision which killed two teenagers in Brantley County, Georgia, early Friday morning, November 18.
A 24-year-old driver from Nahunta, Georgia has been charged with two counts of homicide, as well as a DUI and driving on the wrong side of the road.
The teens were walking on Buffalo Creek Road near Hickox, Georgia at about 2 a.m. The driver was eastbound on the same road in a Grand Cherokee when he hit the teens, one age 19 from Waycross, and the other age 18 from Brunswick, dragging one boy under the vehicle. The two were pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver of the Jeep was not injured.
The Brunswick auto accident lawyers of Farah & Farah law firm extends our condolences to the friends and families of these two teens for their passing.
The story in the News4Jax web site does not say whether the young driver remained on the scene. He is likely facing a long incarceration for this crash, and these families may never recover fully from their loss.
Family members would be well-advised to seek a full investigation to determine the extent of the fault the driver shares from this tragic accident. He could be responsible for compensating these families for their pain and suffering, as well as the wrongful death of the teenagers.
