Teenage driver causes accident, injuring fourteen people

Those who drive around the Cary area feel like they are safe most of the time. Most drivers are careful and understand they need to follow the rules of the road. But, occasionally, a less-than-careful driver hits the road and causes a serious car accident.

A serious accident recently occurred in Cumberland County. A 17-year-old unlicensed driver was headed west on Camden Road and ran a red light. As a result of running the red light, she hit another car that was driven by a Fort Bragg soldier. The accident was so severe that 14 people were taken to a local hospital for their injuries. The driver was charged with driving without a license and running a red light.

Many teenage drivers have earned their reputation as being terrible drivers. There's a reason why insurance costs so much more for teenagers than other drivers. The lack of experience and maturity makes many teenagers a moving hazard on North Carolina roads. If a person finds themselves the victim of a teenage driver, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can visit the accident scene and interview witnesses, review the police report, and get answers for the victim as to what happened to cause the accident. They can hold the negligent driver responsible for their mistake. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

No one expects to be involved in a car accident. But, almost all drivers will be in at least one accident during their driving career. It is important to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions so that they don't harm anyone else.
