Authorities in Alpharetta, Georgia are investigating a multiple car accident that turned into a fatal wreck on Ga. 400 last week.
A 68-year-old Cumming man died at the scene and another remains in North Fulton Hospital after a two-car accident turned into a three-car accident on and around the Ga. 400 ramps, just north of Haynes Bridge Road in Alpharetta.
A third driver was not hurt in the accident. The accident shut down Ga. 400 near Haynes Bridge Road for several hours. The accident occurred after morning rush hour at 10:20 a.m.
According to a report from the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety, Edward Kivlin died at the scene after the Nissan Pathfinder he was driving was struck by a Honda Civic, which had crossed into his northbound lane from an adjacent one.
Both drivers reportedly lost control as their vehicles slid into a grassy area next to the Haynes Bridge northbound ramp.
After striking a guardrail, the Nissan overturned several times and went down an embankment, according to the report.
The Honda was struck by a Dodge minivan traveling along the ramp from Haynes Bridge Road. That driver was not injured.
Alpharetta accident attorney David Van Sant says complex multi-car accidents involving fatalities and serious injuries may not always involve charges. In this case, authorities are still investigating. Accidents do involve insurance companies, hospitals and medical bills, and sometimes, sadly, death, as well as potentially intense pain and suffering.
