According to the University of Georgia Police Department, the accident happened around 3:26 p.m. at the intersection of Lumpkin Street and Wray Street.

The roadway was blocked at the intersection for some time until the scene was cleared.

We would like to offer our warmest sympathies to the party who has been hurt in this accident with hopes of a full recovery.
Georgia pedestrian accidents have been increasing over recent years. In just 2021, it was reported that approximately 348 pedestrians were killed in fatal Georgia pedestrian collisions. Pedestrians are likely to become seriously injured or even killed in the event of an accident due to the fact that they have no protection from harm. When up against tens of thousands of pounds of metal, a pedestrian could become severely harmed in one of these preventable crashes. If you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident and wonder where you can turn, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney that you can trust.
Many individuals are unsure about where they can turn after a life-altering pedestrian accident. If you have sustained harm in one of these accidents, you may be left with a wide array of questions that you cannot answer on your own. For instance, what types of evidence are necessary when it comes to proving that another party is at fault for your accident? What deadlines will you need to meet when it comes to moving forward with a successful claim? Will your claim be settled or make it all the way to trial? These are questions that you can answer with the assistance of an Athens personal injury attorney on your side.
