A man in Raleigh, North Carolina (NC) is facing criminal charges after hitting a moped driver with his pickup truck, causing the victim's death.

The driver of a the pickup is from Nashville, NC, and was driving on Capital Boulevard near the Triangle Town Center Hall on Monday, April 25, 2011. He hit the moped driver at approximately 2:15 pm. An arrest warrant was filed Friday at the Wake County Magistrate's Office, and the pickup truck driver faces one count of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.

Our hearts go out to the friends and family of the unfortunate NC moped accident victim.

Tragedies like these types of motor vehicle accidents are why it's important for truck drivers to take special cautions on the road. With larger vehicles, as well as different types of cargo than passenger cars, they can easily decimate a motorcycle or moped on impact. 

NC truck accident attorneys know just how devastating these types of wrecks can be. Often, the motorcycle accident victim is left unprotected, possibly with just a helmet to prevent them from injury and death. Sadly, however, it is often not enough.

For instance, see what happens when an enormous truck crashes in this video.
