I-85 Accident Leaves Pickup Truck Driver Dead

Comments (0)
Early on September 14, 2011, a Shelby, North Carolina (NC), man died after his pickup truck ran off I-85 in Cherokee County and struck cable barriers. According to GoUpdate.com. the truck hit a fence and several trees before reentering the roadway, crossing two lanes of traffic and running onto the median and into the barriers.

The man succumbed to head injuries he suffered in the crash, but an autopsy will help determine what caused the wreck.

This North Carolina truck crash illustrated the damage that can occur in a truck accident.  Luckily, no other cars got hit at the time of the truck crash. According to one of our prior discussions, North Carolina ranks in the top 10 for truck crashes. Everyone's life becomes at risk when drivers do not pay attention on the road.

As Carolina personal injury attorneys, we have seen many truck accidents occur in busy roads.  Always drive defensively.
