Scene of the Accident

Commentary:

Considering these were young kids, and they were in the same car, chances are they probably knew each other and were friends, so the proceedings after the accident can be difficult to say the least. But one thing I’ve seen needs to be addressed. Considering the driver only had a provisional license, I’m kind of curious who allowed him to drive a car without a parent. This could be a case of negligent instrument, and the vehicle’s owner, or whoever threw him the keys could also bear some liability in the accident, but again, it all depends on the terms of North Carolina’s provisional licenses and how the details solidify through investigation.

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.
