Despite the fact that accidents may cause serious injuries or death to a rider, many people enjoy riding a motorcycle. Unfortunately, North Carolina residents recently witnessed the death of a motorcyclist after he was struck by another vehicle.
While the roads are filled with cars traveling safely each and every day, there are unfortunate cases of accidents and injuries that can occur when things go wrong. Incidents involving cars and trucks can at best end in a small dent or scratch. However, there are times when these types of accidents end in much more tragic ways. Such is the case of a recent fatal car accident in North Carolina.
North Carolina residents use a variety of vehicles to go about their daily business, whether that means going to and from work, dropping off and picking up children at school, buying groceries or taking a leisurely drive. Normally, most people drive confidently but with a certain amount of caution around most other vehicles. When it comes to large vehicles such as tractor-trailers, box trucks and other large commercial vehicles, however, many people become alert to the dangers these vehicles pose by their sheer size and weight.
Memorial Day weekend signals the official beginning of summer and provides an extended weekend to plan an outing or barbeque with family or friends. Memorial Day also reminds Americans of the ultimate sacrifice of members of the military. Many people from North Carolina visit soldier memorials and gravesites to honor their memory. They also travel to beaches and other places of amusement to relax and spend time with their families. The Memorial Day weekend is a busy time for law enforcement officials because of increased road traffic. Although many people drive safely, more people on the road usually means more fatalities reported during holidays.
