Dangers of Speeding

A 20-year-old woman died when her car was struck by a Budget box truck. The fatal car accident occurred on Highway 138 when the woman was merging onto the highway. Smith was driving with a six-month-old child who was airlifted to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. In addition, the two men in the box truck were also taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Speeding may have contributed to the crash. According to 11Alive, the speed limit in the area is 55 mph but many people usually travel at about 70 mph.

Many devastating car wrecks such as these can be avoided.

Here's a few tips to ensure your safety on the road:

  • Drive defensively
  • Wear your seat belt
  • Don't drink and drive
  • Don't text and drive
  • Don't speed
  • Share the road
  • Be courteous
