Driver Charged in Deadly Accident on Castle Hayne Road

A driver was charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle and a charge of running a red light after a deadly accident occurred on Castle Hayne Road in New Hanover County, North Carolina (NC). The at-fault driver, who was operating a red pickup truck, was headed toward a job interview when he ran the red light.
According to WECT, as a result of running the red light, the at-fault driver hit a 64-year-old woman in a goldToyota and she was killed upon impact.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the victim’s family and friends. Anytime a person loses their life in a sudden accident, the pain and trauma inflicted on their friends and family can be extensive. The victim’s family should consider contacting a personal injury lawyer in North Carolina to discuss their legal options. Even though the at-fault driver is being charged for a criminal offense, that does not preclude pursuing some semblance of justice through a civil claim.
