Fatal accident claims life, injures two in North Carolina

Car accidents are a common occurrence across the United States. According to North Carolina Highway Patrol reports, a fatal car accident occurred recently when a 70-year-old woman was killed after her Ford Taurus was hit from behind on Interstate 95 by a negligent driver. Two others suffered injuries.

Troopers of the North Carolina Highway Patrol said that the woman's Ford Taurus was shoved forward after being slammed on the back-end of the vehicle, resulting in the fatal accident. Evidence has also been found of reckless driving, carelessness and excessive speed on the part of the accused, along with the suspected involvement of alcohol. Witnesses said the accused was zigzagging along the road at high speeds prior to the accident. The accused was arrested and has been charged on multiple counts following the crash. He is currently undergoing treatment for injuries. The charges against the accused include involuntary manslaughter, negligent driving, excessive speed and a felony death by motor vehicle charge. The man's vehicle documents were also found to be expired.

Law enforcement officials, Emergency Medical Services, rescue officials and firefighters responded to the car accident. The injured were airlifted and taken to the hospital.

This crash occurred mere days before Independence Day, a holiday notorious for motor vehicle accidents. Road safety awareness was increased in North Carolina over the Independence Day weekend to avoid further gruesome accidents. The safety measures were part of a pre-planned program put in place to control the heightened traffic observed during the holiday period every year.
