Putnam County News
A motor vehicle accident involving three vehicles left three people injured Wednesday morning, May 29, 2019. According to msgr.com, “[t]he crash happened approximately 1 mile south of the Morgan County line…on U.S. 441.” Per the news report, “a 2015 Buick Encore…crossed the center line into the southbound lane and sideswiped a 2005 GMC Sierra truck that was being driven by Gabriel Halton Johnson, age 20 of Monroe.” This impact caused Mr. Johnson’s vehicle to be spun around into the northbound lane where it was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer “driven by Henry Milton Watts, age 55 of Hawkinsville.” Mr. Johnson suffered critical injuries and was “flown from the scene via Air Flight to Naviscent Health Medical Center in Macon,” according to the report. Mr. Watts and the driver of the Buick Encore were taken to the hospital with complaints of pain.
The crash is still under investigation.
Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, Gabriel Halton Johnson may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for his injuries. In addition, any other injured victim may elect to seek justice and file a claim for their injuries. The Murray Law Firm has had extensive and successful experience representing victims of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, and the legal team at the firm suggests that Gabriel Johnson should retain a law firm without delay to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation and the preservation of any and all evidence. Photographs of the roadways and vehicles involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before this evidence is damaged or destroyed.
