Yet another car accident in Georgia ends in tragedy
The Caitlyn Pollock car accident serves as a grim reminder of just how deadly car accidents can be. Unsafe driving practices play a major role in most fatal accidents. In spite of this, drivers often act negligently, whether willingly or unwittingly.
Georgia ranks 4th in the number of fatal accidents despite having the 8th largest population in the country. According to the Georgian National Statistics Office, 6,640 people were injured and 450 died in traffic accidents in 2020.
