Accident on NC Highway 49 Involving a Tractor-Trailer Causes Loss of Life

Comments (0)
A Davidson County couple were killed, and their grandson was injured, when a tractor trailer crashed into the couple’s car head-on. The wreck occurred just south of Asheboro, North Carolina (NC), in a no-passing zone on NC Highway 49 when the truck forced the victims' car off the road, according to The Republic

It is likely police will file charges against the truck driver.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the family. Losing someone close to you is never easy, but the pain is made even worse when the loss is sudden and caused by a reckless driver’s behavior.

Members of the family should consider filing a wrongful death claim against the at-fault truck driver. If police do indeed file charges, the driver could face criminal penalties, but that does not prevent a loved one from pursuing civil damages through a wrongful death suit.

To learn more about the types of damages that can be pursued in a North Carolina wrongful death suit, take a look at this article written by a wrongful death attorney in North Carolina.
