Accidents can happen even on the best of days. They can seem senseless, leaving people with questions. How will they move on? How can they pay for the damage? Sometimes the damage is irreparable.
On what should have been a very happy day, two families now face a funeral just hours after a wedding in Georgia. As reported in WSOC, a witness was driving when he saw the groom stumbling on the side of the road. He was covered in blood and his shirt was torn up.
The Georgia State Patrol was called and the groom was questioned. He and his bride had just left their wedding reception in a sports car. The car went off the road when he tried to swerve to avoid hitting a dog. The car rolled down an embankment. The bride was thrown out of the car and the car rolled right on top of her.
The groom is now recovering in a local hospital, but they police say that charges may be pressed depending on a blood test. If they find that the groom was drunk when he left the wedding reception, there will be even more tragedy added to this sad case.
The families might be justifiably angry, and file a wrongful death claim in their grief.
