Fatal Crash in Cary, NC Prompts Charges Against At-Fault Driver

Comments (0)
On February 12, 2012, two young adults were killed on Southwest Cary Parkway in Cary, North Carolina (NC), when their vehicle was hit by a speeding car being driven by a 22-year-old woman. Investigations revealed that if the at-fault driver wasn’t going 22 mph over the posted speed limit of 45 mph, it is very likely that the accident never would have occurred.

The at-fault driver is being charged with a Class 2 misdemeanor speeding, which carries a maximum penalty of 45 days in jail in North Carolina.

Disregarding the speed limit can result in dire consequences, as illustrated by this tragic accident. The families of the victims should contact a wrongful death lawyer in North Carolina to discuss their legal options. Just because the at-fault driver is facing criminal charges does not preclude the families from bringing civil lawsuits.
