The accident occurred when the driver, a 19-year-old woman, lost control her vehicle for unknown reasons. The man who died was 21 years old. Alcohol use is not suspected, and police expect the surviving teen will be able to provide key evidence once he recovers enough to speak with authorities.

With no answers to the cause of the accident, the victims' families may want to contact a personal injury attorney in North Carolina to determine what kind of action, if any, can be taken. If it turns out the driver was speeding or distracted, there may be grounds for pursuing damages through personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.
