18-year-old taken into custody after man's death

An 18-year-old woman has been taken into custody after a man was killed in a car accident in Georgia on Sept. 17. Authorities reported that they responded to an anonymous tip that led to the teen's arrest in the wrongful death. The victim had just been released from Douglasville jail and walked outside when he was hit. She was held without bond.

Driving drowsy may be as dangerous as driving drunk

According to several separate studies, drowsy driving in Georgia and across the nation can be as problematic as drinking and driving. One woman told her story of dozing off behind the wheel. She remembers feeling drowsy, but she didn't think she'd fall asleep. The next thing she knew, she had flipped her car onto the side of the road. Because she was in a dark, rural area, no vehicles passing by could see her after the car accident. She lay in the car for hours waiting for help.

Atlanta schools watching wrongful death suit by player's mom

Atlanta colleges with athletic programs were watching closely a lawsuit filed by a grieving mother against the National Collegiate Athletic Association and a football helmet maker after her athlete son died of brain injuries received in practices. In addition to the high-speed contact drills required by the football coach, the suit singles out product failure in the helmets made by Schutt Sports as a cause of her son's death. The 22-year-old had been a two-time all-conference senior at Frostburg State University in Maryland.
