In Georgia and around the United States, adoptions occur every day with the hopes of giving a child a safe, secure home and creating a family. They involve children from a variety of situations, such as those from a young mother who wants her child to have a better life than the one she can provide, those from a foreign country, or those who are adopted by a stepparent.
A Georgia man recently was sentenced to 15 years in prison for a 2017 crash that left four members of a family injured. His blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of the crash was .29 percent, which is more than three times the legal limit in the state.
The recent holiday travel period was deadly on Georgia roads this year. In all, 26 people were killed in crashes that occurred between 6 p.m. on Dec. 21 and 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 26. The Georgia Department of Public Safety (DPS) reported that the total number of deaths was 11 more than in 2017.
If you were recently involved in a motor vehicle collision on a Georgia roadway, you may have already re-lived the events that unfolded a hundred times in your mind. Many people who have suffered in similar situations say they recall the strangest details, such as different smells or colors, or other scenes that somehow etched themselves into their minds just before or after the impact of a crash.
