Joan and John Woodford, of Macon, were reportedly killed when their pickup truck collided with a tractor trailer Sunday afternoon, December 16, 2018.
According to The Union Recorder, the “fatal collision happened at the intersection of Vinson Highway, also known as GA Highway 112, and the Fall Line Freeway, near the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery..”
Georgia State Patrol told The Macon Telegraph, a “tractor trailer traveling south on Ga. 112 ran the stop sign at the GA. 243 intersection and was struck in the left side by the Woodfords’ Ford F-150.” The tractor trailer subsequently “overturned onto the pickup.”
Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the tractor trailer driver is found to be at fault, the family of Mr. and Mrs. Woodford may elect to file civil claims in their wrongful deaths.
Based upon its experience and success handling motor vehicle accident claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the Woodford family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the vehicles and roadways involved and a review of traffic surveillance footage will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
