A male driver lost his life after a solo car crash in Bibb County, on I-75. The crash happened early Sunday night, July 25th. The cause of the accident remains unknown at the time of this report.
However, in a press release by the Sheriff’s Office, the investigators revealed that the solo car crash in Bibb County happened around 7:56 p.m. on Interstate 75 near Hardeman Avenue. The sheriff’s office said the 31-year-old man was heading north when he went off the roadway and hit a guardrail. It happened just after the Hardeman Avenue exit.
When deputies arrived at the crash site, they found the man partially ejected from the vehicle. Medics transported him to Atrium Navicent Health, where he passed away from his injuries. No one else sustained injuries from the crash, and the sheriff’s office had not informed the next of kin at the time of the release.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing. Anyone with relevant information should contact the sheriff’s office or the Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
No matter how careful a person is on the road, they will likely crash their vehicle. This is because there are several careless drivers on the roadway. When a motorist behaves recklessly, like driving beyond the speed limit, they are said to have breached their duty of care to other road users.
A driver who breaches the duty of care harms another person, and the driver who breaches the duty will have to pay damages. This is because Georgia is a fault state, and a person who causes an accident will have to foot the medical bills and pay for the car repairs of the victim.
