Woman hit and killed by logging truck

Logging trucks are a common sight in North Carolina. The abundance of forests makes logging a valuable industry for our state. But, as we recently wrote about, logging trucks can be dangerous for those who are sharing the road with them.

A fatal accident recently occurred when an elderly pedestrian was hit and killed by a logging truck. The woman, who was visiting the area from Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday, was in a crosswalk in Lillington when she was hit by a logging truck that was turning onto Main Street. The driver was charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian and a misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.

No one expects their loved one will be killed in a tragic accident. These are events that no one can prepare for so, when it happens, it is devastating. In these emotional situations, a family may want to seek out an attorney who specializes in personal injury. An attorney has experience in helping families who have been hurt through no fault of their own. They can investigate the accident scene, interview witnesses, review police reports and help determine what happened to cause the accident. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and other damages.

Logging trucks continue to be a danger on North Carolina roads. These trucks are large and often cause serious injury or even death. It is important for negligent drivers to be held responsible for their mistakes so that no one else is harmed.
