UPDATE: David Anderson Killed in Alleged Drunk Driving Accident in Burke County, North Carolina

BURKE COUNTY, NC — One man has died, and a woman was taken to the hospital after a traffic collision in Burke County, North Carolina on Wednesday, May 28th, 2014, according to WBTV’s news report.

Investigators believe that 49-year-old David Anderson was killed when he was struck by a vehicle as he was assisting a stranded motorist in front of his home on Highway 18 around 10:00 Wednesday evening.

Scene of the Accident



David Anderson was killed in the accident. The driver of the stranded vehicle was identified in the report as Lorrine Vaughn, who was also hurt in the crash.

The driver of the offending vehicle was identified in the report as Conan Hunt, who currently faces drunk driving related charges in connection with the accident.

North Carolina State Police are helping with the crash investigation.


Finding out where the alleged drunk driver in this accident should be priority one for investigators. What is significant about this information? Well, all drunk drivers are not created equal, and in the State of North Carolina, a bartender or server is forbidden from serving alcohol if they have any suspicion that the customer is going to drive. If the customer displays bloodshot eyes, trouble walking and balancing, and poor motor skills, all while talking about driving home after the bar, the bar can be held liable for the accident if they allow them to leave, and if alcohol is found to be the cause of the accident.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
