Elderly Man Killed in Charlotte, NC Accident Caused by Red Light Runner
According to WCNC NewsChannel 36, Tyler Lowe, 20, drove his Toyota Scion through the intersection and hit a Chevrolet Cavalier driven by the man who lost his life at the scene. A second victim also suffered life-threatening injuries. Police said Lowe had swerved around another vehicle at a red light in order to enter the intersection.
My thoughts are with the elderly man's family. Losing a loved one in such a senseless accident is difficult. I can only hope the injured victim can make a full recovery.
The police seem to have made the right call in charging the at-fault driver. When a driver ignores a stop signal, lives are at put at risk. In this case, a life was indeed lost. The only consolation for the elderly man's family and friends is the idea that justice will be served.
