Father of 4-year-old killed in a car accident in North Carolina

Hearing the words car accident can make someone think of a traffic delay, picture a mutilated vehicle or worry for those involved. Whether considered a minor motor vehicle collision or a major one, it is not something to take lightly. When someone is killed in a car accident, it becomes increasingly devastating. A recent crash in North Carolina has left a little boy without his father.

While traveling down the road, the 22-year-old driver of a passenger automobile was going well over the speed limit. As the vehicle was rounding a curve, the driver lost control and sent the car flying across the other side of the street into the guard rail and then flipping repeatedly. The severity of the crash took the life of the 23-year-old male passenger and sent his 4-year-old son to the hospital, his condition unknown.

The woman driving the vehicle was driving with a revoked license. She has also been charged with driving recklessly and impaired driving, two factors in this early Sunday morning accident. The possibility of more charges remains, as alcohol is said to have been involved as well. The driver seemed to be in good condition following the motor vehicle collision.

The 22-year-old woman driving in this North Carolina single-vehicle accident is facing multiple charges. However, the loved ones of the injured child and man who lost his life in this crash have the right to file civil claims for wrongful death and personal injury. These claims cannot bring back the 23-year-old man's life, but they can compensate for medical expenses and funeral costs. Having a loved one killed in a car accident leaves one in shock and grieving; these family members are also hoping and praying for the 4-year-old's full recovery.
