What Happened:

The driver a Honda ran a stop sign and caused a deadly accident on Old Warsaw Road in Clinton, North Carolina (NC). A 53-year old man driving in his pickup crashed into the Honda. According to the Fay Observer, both cars skidded off the road as a result of the crash with the pickup truck overturning. The man was killed and the Honda driver was treated and released from Sampson Regional Medical Center. The Honda driver faces misdemeanor death by vehicle charges.

The North Carolina Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:

Traffic signs are meant to be obeyed and when they are carelessly disregarded, as what appears to have occurred in this accident, the ramifications can be severe. The victim's family should contact a North Carolina wrongful death attorney to see if it is feasible to pursue restitution through a civil claim against the driver of the Honda. Just because the Honda driver is facing criminal charges does not preclude the family from seeking some semblance of justice through the civil system.
