Chain reaction car accidents in North Carolina leave 1 dead
Vehicle accidents can go from one extreme to another. They can be minor fender benders, or they can be multiple car pile-ups that leave one or more people with fatal injuries. The one thing that makes the more intense car accidents worse is when the driver thought to be responsible for the accident leaves the scene. This is unfortunately the case in a recent chain-reaction accident in North Carolina.
According to the report, local police are currently looking for an individual believed to have caused a four-car chain reaction collision. The report indicated that the police believe that the person responsible is a female. They also stated that the accident was more than likely caused by the woman making an illegal and improper passing of another vehicle on the small, two-lane road.
The chain reaction effect came when the multiple vehicles involved were forced to slam on the brakes in order to avoid a head-on collision with the oncoming vehicle. Sadly, one person was killed in the accident. Another person was also injured in the crash and was taken to a local hospital in order to get treated for her injuries. Both victims were in the same vehicle, which was found on its roof in a nearby ditch.
Car accidents that leave behind death can also leave behind sadness and confusion. Unfortunately, the driver of one of the vehicles involved has been charged as a result of the accident. This person may be the one to face the North Carolina criminal charges if the other driver is not found. The victim’s family members may need to find out if there are any options that they may have in order to obtain any type of compensation from any drivers that may be held accountable for their actions.
