Woman Charged in North Carolina for Causing Fatal Car Wreck

Comments (0)
On February 19, 2012, a fatal accident occurred on NC 211 near Midway Road in Brunswick County, North Carolina (NC).

As reported by Star News, a woman driving a Chevy Tahoe hit a Southport police car, sending it into oncoming traffic. A 73-year-old man driving a minivan hit the police cruiser and had his roll over in a ditch. He died from his injuries. The driver of the SUV and a 22-year-old police officer were taken to a hospital for treatment.

As a result of this accident, the SUV driver has been charged with misdemeanor death by a motor vehicle. Her failure to reduce her speed allegedly caused the car crash, the injuries and, ultimately, death of the minivan driver.

In situations like this, the family of the deceased driver is dealing with the emotional loss of a loved one, and it is hard to think clearly. A compassionate, experienced North Carolina wrongful death attorney can help the family through this difficult time by dealing with the filing of claims and other issues that arise while they grieve. While receiving a monetary award from a wrongful death lawsuit won’t bring their loved one back, they may be entitled to compensation that can provide financial stability in the future. Read this general information from a North Carolina personal injury attorney regarding wrongful death suits.
