A two car accident claimed the life of one woman and left another injured Saturday afternoon, March 16, 2019.

According to, “[o]fficers say they were dispatched to a two car accident at the intersection of S. Cedar Street and W.S. Broad Street around 2:30 p.m Saturday.”  The news story reports that “76-year-old Lois Faye Winkler was in the front passenger seat of the vehicle that was struck…she died on the scene from blunt force traumatic injuries.” reports, “Walhalla Police charged the driver of the other vehicle…with Felony DUI Resulting in Death, Driving Under Suspension, and Broken Seal Liquor.” The alleged DUI driver was “taken to the hospital and later to the Oconee County Detention Center.”

Our Legal Take

As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the driver of the other vehicle is found to be at fault, Lois Faye Winkler’s family may elect to file civil claims for their loss.

Based upon its experience and success handling accident cases, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Ms. Winkler’s family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the vehicle and roadways involved and a review of traffic surveillance footage will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
