Update on Fayette County Georgia Sheriff Car Crash

As an update to our previous post, it appears that Fayette County Sheriff Capt. Deborah Hannah was on her way to her home when she crashed into a Danielle Mask and her four year old daughter.

Investigation of this matter has also discovered that deputies do not typically respond using their sirens and emergency lights unless there is suspicion that the burglar is still at the scene or in the area.

According to sheriff’s spokesperson, the issue of using sirens and emergency lights is not addressed in the procedure manual for sheriffs.  As such, the crash is going to be reviewed by the accident review board.

If the decision from the accident review board is appealed the sheriff or Capt. Hannah’s husband would be in charge of the decision.  It is expected that if the matter is appealed that Sheriff Hannah will step aside and allow someone to be appointed to make a ruling on the pending matter.

The Georgia State Patrol is still investigating the matter and no traffic citations have been issued at this point.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
