Bogart, GA – Passenger Killed in Fatal Collision at Atlanta Hwy & Dakota Dr

Bogart, GA (March 1, 2022) – A passenger died following a fatal collision at an intersection in Bogart on Sunday morning, February 27. 

Athens-Clarke County Police confirmed that the accident happened around 10:48 a.m. at the intersection of Atlanta Highway and Dakota Drive. A driver was traveling west in a Ford Explorer when they lost control of their vehicle. This caused the Ford to exit the road and strike an embankment, when it forcefully overturned. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were called to the scene to help those in need. A 50-year-old female passenger from Athens was severely injured in the collision. She was transported to a local hospital but was tragically pronounced dead while there. Five other passengers were in the vehicle but none of them were injured. 

The roadway was blocked in the area of the intersection for an extended period of time. Police quickly worked to clear the scene. 

No further details have been released but the investigation continues. Police will update with more information as it becomes available. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. 

Fatal Accidents in Georgia

Car accidents take on many different forms but single-vehicle collisions are capable of causing extensive harm to those involved. Many of these collisions involve rollovers, which make up approximately 2% of car accidents but lead to some of the most severe harm. In the blink of an eye, the life of a loved one could be taken due to a fatal crash. In 2020, the Georgia Department of Transportation reported that approximately 1,588 collisions led to fatal results within the state. Losing a loved one in a preventable crash is never an easy reality to face. If you have sustained these losses, you should have the experienced help of an attorney on your side.
