A car accident that took place minutes outside of the Atlanta area recently claimed the leg of a teenaged- girl. During the latest snow storm, the family vehicle the girl was traveling in with her mother and twin sister slid into the curb behind another car that had recently slid into the same curb in what was described as an "ice rink." The teenaged-girl and family members were acting as good Samaritans assisting a motorist by pushing the motorist's vehicle stuck in the ice, as well as their own vehicle. A witness reported that a car was coming up too fast behind the group and struck the girl, pinning her between the cars. The girl lost her left leg as a result of the accident but it is hoped that her right leg will heal without any need for it to be removed.
