A North Carolina judge has decided to bar a man from ever driving in our state. This ruling stems from an auto accident that took the life of the man's then girlfriend and injured a family. The man's attorney plans to appeal the judge's decision while his client serves 12.5 to 16.5 years in prison as the result of a plea bargain.
The accident that is putting this man in prison happened in Oct. 2012. As his girlfriend was driving down North Carolina Highway 53, the man was riding next to her in the front seat. He suddenly grabbed the steering wheel and forced the vehicle into the oncoming lanes of traffic. The car ended up directly in the path of an SUV and the two vehicles collided head-on.
