A man noticed a stalled truck in the intersection and stopped to help. The driver of a semi also stopped to help, but a smaller truck crashed into the stalled truck and both of the men trying to help. Tragically, Adrian Kinyanjui Njugana died at the scene and Donald Bennett was seriously injured.

The North Carolina Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:

It is in most humans’ nature to assist someone if they can. The victims of this accident should be commended for trying to help another driver, and their families should be proud. However, right now, Mr. Njugana’s family is probably feeling sadness and a profound sense of loss and Mr. Bennett’s family is hoping that he recovers quickly and completely. At times like this, it is hard enough to come to terms with the reality of losing a loved one, let alone trying to deal with accident reports, insurance companies, and investigators. An experienced North Carolina car accident attorney can relieve some of the stress of dealing with the facts of the case so the family can spend more time comforting the victim and each other and remembering the one they loved.
