A car traveling on Spring Sparrow Road in Crowders Mountain was involved in a single car accident in which the vehicle was overturned. Occupants in the car included the driver and three passengers. One of the occupants was ejected from the vehicle and was reported by police to have received life-threatening injuries.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the accident took place a mile southeast of the U.S. 74 interchange with Interstate 85, near Kings Mountain and resulted in the road being shut down for 90 minutes. Besides the critically injured occupant, two other people in the car were also transferred to Gaston Memorial Hospital. A fourth person refused to be treated at the scene. The State Highway Patrol is investigating the accident and have not released any other details at this time.
The North Carolina Lawyer Perspective:
Three people were injured in this accident, one of them with life-threatening injuries. This was a single car accident and the vehicle overturned. Although police are still investigating, one cause of the accident may have been excessive speed. Who knows how long the road to recovery for these injured victims may be.
Should the injured parties have any questions concerning responsibility for their injuries, they should contact an experienced North Carolina personal injury attorney to discuss their potential claims.
