3 generations of a North Carolina family die in car crash

A 2-year-old girl, her 22-year-old mother, and her 42-year-old grandmother all lost their lives in a fatal crash in Nash County early in the morning on Friday, Sept. 1.

According to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, the family was driving along U.S. Highway 264 close to Bailey when the car's engine stalled. At that time, they were riding in the leftmost lane, fast approaching state highway 581.

Around the same time that the car stalled, there was a pickup truck driver, who had been traveling in the same direction in the right lane and heading in their direction. A tractor-trailer operator was driving too slow in front of him so he moved to the left lane in hopes of passing it. Not too long after he did, he collided with the family's stalled car. All three occupants were killed in an instant as a result.

When interviewed by the highway patrol, the truck driver noted that he didn't see the family before colliding with their vehicle. It's unclear if any charges will be filed against the man for his role in causing their deaths.

As for the two adult victims, they both worked at L&L Foods in Bailey. They apparently didn't have life insurance necessary to cover funeral costs. The younger of the two adult victims leaves behind an additional child. Co-workers are currently raising funds to help defray costs necessary to help with both concerns.

If you have a loved one who's lost his or her life in a motor vehicle collision, then a North Carolina car accident attorney can advise you of your right to recover expenses including funeral costs in your case.
