Man driving drunk kills teenage girl

Cary residents understand the seriousness of drunk driving. Drinking and driving is a decision, and these accidents are completely preventable. A fatal car accident recently occurred in Vance County that was allegedly caused by a drunk driver.

A recent fatal accident occurred in Henderson. Two vehicles were traveling when one slowed down to turn into a driveway. The vehicle behind them did not slow down and crashed into them. The crashed caused the death of a 16-year-old girl and seriously injured two other teens that were in the car.

Police believe the driver who hit them was drunk at the time of the accident. He fled the scene but was arrested. He has been charged with 2nd degree murder, felony death by vehicle, driving while impaired, felony hit and run, open container of alcohol, failure to reduce speed and a license restriction violation.

No one expects their beloved family member will be involved in a serious accident. When the accident is caused by another person's negligence and was completely preventable, it can be even harder to take. In these situations, a family 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 police reports and get all the information necessary to help the family figure out what happened. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.

An accident caused by a drunk driver could have been prevented if that driver would have not chosen to drive drunk. It is important to hold these negligent drivers responsible for their actions.
