It caused the two vehicles to collide, leading the car to crash into the median concrete barrier and flip a number of times. Due to the horrific overturn, the driver of the car was ejected from the car. Identified as 40-year-old Earl Griffis IV, he was pronounced dead from traumatic injuries at the scene of the accident.

After Earl’s Honda Accord lost control, the SUV involved in the crash continued to travel southbound and fled the scene. A search is now underway to identify the driver of that SUV.

Traffic in the area was blocked for two hours due to the severity of the accident. The scene was cleared by the rush hour in the afternoon. 

The family of Earl Griffis IV in Gary, Indiana, was informed of the tragic event. Investigations are still underway to determine the cause of the accident.

We offer our deepest condolences to the grieving family for the heartbreaking loss that could have been prevented.

Every Road Accident in Georgia could have been prevented 

In most fatal accidents, unsafe driving practices play a major role. Ironically, all drivers indulge in unsafe behavior, whether knowingly or unknowingly, even though they know it’s dangerous.

Georgia ranks 4th in fatal accident deaths despite being the 8th most populous. As reported by the Georgian National Statistics Office, 4,999 road accidents in 2020 left 6,640 injured and 450 dead.

We strongly urge you to recognize and reject unsafe driving practices including:

  • Driving while drunk or under the influence of substances
  • Distracted driving – texting, phone calls, music, etc.
  • Driving without a seatbelt
  • Speeding irresponsibly

When a person dies as a result of negligence – either their own or that of others – it is the grieving family that helplessly suffers the most.
