A male driver and his passenger lost their lives in a traffic accident in Augusta. The accident occurred on Sunday evening, May 10th. The crash report showed that the driver lost control of his vehicle, causing it to roll.
The report further disclosed that the accident occurred on Deans Bridge Road near Brentway Drive. The motorist, 21-year-old Noel Lett, of the 4100 block of Darsey Court in Hepzibah, lost control of the vehicle at about 5;30 p.m. According to Richmond County Coroner Mark Bowen, the car rolled, and first responders had to extricate the driver.
Medics transported Lett to Augusta University Medical Center, where medical personnel pronounced him dead at 9:31 p.m. The passenger identified by the coroner as Noah Anderson, 24, of the 2300 block of Golden Camp Road, got ejected from the vehicle. The medic also conveyed him to AUMC, where he died at 6:14 p.m.
Bowen said Lett and Anderson died from injuries sustained from the accident, and there won’t be an autopsy. The coroner’s office is handling the investigation into the traffic accident in Augusta.
Motor vehicle accident injuries range from minor, to severe, to fatal. Most severe wounds often become fatal if the injured victim fails to respond to treatment. This is why traffic accidents are among the leading causes of death in the United States.
Also, crash victims who die sometimes have internal injuries that doctors don’t detect in time. This is often because most people feel fine after an accident and fail to get a medical checkup to rule out internal bleeding. Thus, accident victims must get a medical examination even if they feel fine after a crash.
