One month ago Alabama basketball player Jermareo Davidson experienced the tragic loss of his girlfriend in a car crash on I-20 near Atlanta. Now the star center’s life has been turned upside down as he deals with the guilt and grief associated with the loss.
This is a very personal example of how a motor vehicle accident can change the lives of those left behind. A split-second mistake can cause a lifetime of anguish and pain.
