Midway — 6 People Killed in Head-On Collision on Interstate 95

On the early morning of Sunday, February 23, 2020, six people were killed in a head-on collision that occurred in Liberty County, Georgia.

According to initial reports, a white Lexus was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of Interstate 95, near Midway, when eventually, it collided head-on with an SUV. All occupants in both vehicles were pronounced dead at the scene.

The SUV had Virginia tags, and according to authorities, two adults and three children were in that vehicle. The passengers have since been identified as 41-year-old Sara Robinson, 37-year-old Nathan Robinson, 12 or 13-year-old Stephen Robinson, 13 or 14-year-old Rebecca Robinson, and 4 or 5-year-old Alexander Robinson. All five were from Portsmouth, Virginia.

The driver of the Lexus was only identified as an elderly man, and he was the only one inside the vehicle.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents are a serious problem in this day and age, and yet they still happen quite often. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is roughly about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. The three common causes of car accidents are DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs), speeding, and driving while distracted.

A particular type of car accident, head-on collision, is probably the most dangerous type of crashes of them all, simply because of the increased force sustained by both drivers. Reports estimate that head-on collisions only comprise 2% of reported crashes, but they do account for well over 10% of driving fatalities. Spinal injuries, brain injuries, catastrophic injuries, broken bones, paralysis, and of course death are some of the common outcomes of a head-on collision.

Car accidents, especially head-on collisions, are undeniably devastating for the victims and their loved ones. For that reason, if you are a victim of a head-on collision, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this type of crash, then never hesitate to reach out for help. The police will be there for you, but more than that, car accident attorneys are also present to help you protect your rights and get the justice that you deserve.
