According to the newspaper, the driver hit a tree after his Jeep Cherokee left the road. Initially charged with driving while impaired and aggravated felony death by vehicle, the 26-year-old now also faces two counts of aggravated felony serious injury by vehicle. Investigators also determined he was driving too fast for the existing conditions. While unrelated to the accident, the Sun Journal stated the driver also has outstanding charges probation violations, possession of stolen goods and driving with a suspended license.

The victims or their families should contact a North Carolina car accident attorney to determine what course of action should be taken, especially in light of the additional charges against the driver. Even if they are friends of the driver, it is important for them to protect their legal rights and pursue compensation for their injuries and losses.
