According to the State Highway Patrol the at-fault teen was racing another car driven by a 16-year-old.  The second driver lost control and crashed into a tree, the 16-year-old driver and one of his passengers died. The other two passengers were taken to Duke Hospital with serious injuries.

The North Carolina Wrongful Death Lawyers’ Perspective

Unfortunately many young lives are lost every year in car accidents; it grieves me deeply to hear of such accidents, my condolences are with anyone impacted by this heartbreaking loss. Street racing is regrettably an all too common occurrence among young drivers. They don’t see the inherent risk, or countless variables that can cause an accident. For this reason states all over the country have begun enforcing strict street racing laws.

Both the families of the deceased driver and his passengers should consult with an experienced attorney to assist them with any insurance claims or lawsuits that need to be filed.
