Wrong-way crash in Georgia Kills Family of Five from Portsmouth, Virginia

February 24, 2020

A 2012 Nissan Rogue was struck by a 2017 Lexus RX350 traveling the wrong direction down Interstate 95 northbound in Liberty County. The location of the crash was approximately 25 miles from Savannah, Georgia. All 5 passengers inside the Nissan were killed from the impact of the accident. The Lexus, who hit the Nissan head on, was driven by a 77-year-old man who was also killed from the results of the crash. The Nissan contained a family of five including two parents and their three children ranging from age 4 to 14 from Portsmouth, Virginia. All occupants of both cars were wearing seatbelts and there is no suspicion of impairment for the driver at fault.

Car accidents can happen at any time and can be fatal for all individuals involved. Unfortunately, even safe drivers can be involved in a car accident due to the negligence of someone else. Multi-vehicle crashes are devastating, especially when they lead to multiple fatalities. It is important to constantly be aware while driving to try and prevent a potential crash.
