Three family member perish in a North Carolina car crash

Driving a motor vehicle can seem like a simple activity. While it is rather routine for some residents in North Carolina, it is an activity that requires attention and a duty of care to be upheld. Today, technology and social media are important factors in most people's lives; however, these need to take the back seat when a motorist is operating a motor vehicle. Nonetheless, many drivers are compelled by these distractions, causing inattentiveness and negligence behind the wheel.

According to recent reports, a fatal car accident in Nash County resulted in the death of three generations in one vehicle. Police reported that the crash occurred in the morning hours near baily on Highway 264. Authorities believe the rear-end collision occurred when the driver of a truck attempted to pass a camper it was behind in the right-hand lane. The truck driver did not see the stopped vehicle in the left lane, resulting in a collision.

The stopped vehicle was traveling with a 42-year-old woman, her 22-year-old daughter and her 2-year-old grand daughter. All three were tragically killed in the crash. The North Carolina State Highway Patrol reported that the crash is still under investigation. No charges have been filed at this time; however, following investigation and cause is determined, charges could ensue.

The death of a loved one in a car accident or any accident for that matter is an emotional and traumatic event. While it is difficult to process such an unfortunate occurrence, it is important to understand that surviving family members have legal recourses. A wrongful death charge could help offset the losses and damages caused by the incident.
