Motorcycle accident injures army veteran and his friend


Reckless driving on the roads continues to be a threat in North Carolina. Through various methods, officials remind drivers to drive safely and watch out for others on the roads. However, some drivers still drive negligently. After an accident, some drivers do not even stay at the scene. Negligent driving may cause pedestrians, motorcyclists or occupants of vehicles to suffer, as a recent motorcycle accident indicates.

16 fatal accidents reported on North Carolina highways


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.

Head-on collision claims life in North Carolina


With traffic accidents on the rise in North Carolina, many residents worry when a family member travels. Many pray for the safety of their parents, children or siblings who commute from one location to the other for school, work or other reasons.

Driver charged in elementary school bus accident


No parent wants to think that a child on a school bus is in more danger than any other vehicle on the road. Usually they are just as safe as if they were being driven to school by a parent. One recent accident involving a school bus 50 miles east of Durham, however, probably has some parents thinking about other ways to get their kids to school.

Rural car accident kills one and injures two west of Durham


One North Carolina woman died and two motorists were left injured following an early morning car accident in Archdale, some 60 miles west of Durham. According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, a 59-year-old woman was traveling south on U.S. Highway 311 around 6:50 a.m. when she crossed the center line and went into the path of a truck heading north. A head-on collision with the truck forced the woman's car back across the center line and into the path of a minivan heading the same direction. After hitting the minivan, the woman's car ran into a ditch.

New electronic device may reduce commercial vehicle accidents


Unfortunately, commercial vehicle accidents are quite common on North Carolina's roads. It seems like newspapers are often flooded with reports of a commercial vehicle accident. Help may be on the way, though. According to a recent proposal by the U.S. government, commercial vehicles, such as trucks and buses, would have to be equipped with electronic devices that record the operational time of the vehicles. It is hoped the new regulation, if implemented, would reduce the number of wrecks by keeping tired drivers off the road. Drivers of these vehicles would no longer be able to lie, as the device would show the actual length of time the vehicle was in operation.

Two hospitalized after three-car crash in North Carolina


In what can seem like an instant, victims can be thrust into accidents that forever alter their lives. Sometimes accidents occur so quickly that victims are unable to process the many split-second occurrences that comprise the whole of the crash. Before they know it, long-term injuries, damages and lost wages can become harsh realities in their lives. Though nothing can undo the trauma they have endured, victims can sometimes pursue financial remedy for the monetary damage they have suffered.

Holiday traffic ends in ten fatalities in North Carolina

It is tragic that due to the increase in traffic over the holiday season, the number of car accidents and fatalities also increases. Weather may play a role in many of these accidents since Thanksgiving often marks the beginning of winter weather like snow, ice, and sleet. In many other accidents, however, driver error or negligence is often the cause. Drivers fall asleep at the wheel during long trips, drivers are distracted by passengers, and drivers engage in dangerous and risky behaviors like speeding or drunk driving. While many of these accidents are relatively minor, fatal accidents are not uncommon.
