A passenger lost his life in an accident that occurred on NC Highway 10 in Lincoln County, North Carolina (NC). The driver ran off the right shoulder of the road causing the truck to overturn. The truck hit four culverts and a phone box causing the truck to flip several times. Both the driver and passenger were wearing seat belts, according to foxcharlotte.com.
Authorities determined that the driver was operating the vehicle with a suspended driver’s license.
The North Carolina Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
The passenger’s family should talk to a North Carolina wrongful death attorney to discuss their legal options. The reports indicate that the driver of the truck failed to operate the vehicle in a reasonable fashion, which may provide grounds to seek damages through a wrongful death claim.
