One Person is Dead Following a Head-on Collision with a Garbage Truck in Stonecrest, Georgia

STONECREST, Ga. – A person was killed when the sedan they were in was struck head-on by a garbage truck. The incident happened along Lithonia Road at Lithonia Industrial Boulevard.

The incident, which resulted in the fatality of the driver of a four-door sedan, occurred when the garbage truck collided head-on with another vehicle.

No further details have been released.

Thoughts on Head-on Collisions

Sedans are no match for the head-on impact from a massive truck. Fatal accidents like this one leave the family of the deceased to seek answers. Answers as to what caused a garbage truck to crash head-on with their loved one’s vehicle and who should be held accountable for the loss of life.

Although details about this accident remain limited, we know most head-on collisions often stem from driver error or a mechanical issue. An investigation conducted by trained professionals is necessary to determine the cause of the crash and the extent of fault involved.

Families left to mourn their loved ones through no fault of their own deserve justice. When the safety of others is compromised on our roads, we need accountability. The family deserves answers and justice.
