A family is grieving the loss of a 9-year-old daughter and a grandmother in an accident on U.S. 74 near Lumberton, North Carolina (NC). The deased victims were passengers in Mitsubishi waiting to make a right-hand turn when an oncoming SUV crossed the center line of the highway and hit their vehicle. The victims were transported to Southeastern Regional Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims' family. Losing loved ones is difficult, but the pain is worse when a victim is young and had their whole life ahead of them. In this tragic wreck, a young girl will never get to fulfill her destiny due to the careless actions of a single individual.
The family should consider speaking wth a wrongful death attorney in North Carolina to discuss their legal options. Charges are reportedly pending against the at-fault driver, but that does not preclude the family from seeking justice through a civil claim. To learn about wrongful death lawsuits, read this artcle.
