The accident occurred in the 6900 block of Ardrey Kell Road. The driver of a Mercedes SUV crossed over the center line and sideswiped a Toyota Tacoma traveling in the opposite direction. After the impact with the truck the Mercedes then collided head-on with a Toyota Sequoia. The driver of the Mercedes had to be airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center where it was reported that she died of her injuries. The other two drivers involved were taken to the CMC-Pineville by ambulance.
The accident is still under investigation.
The North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers’ Perspective
This accident is an unfortunate loss of life and a clear picture of how deadly a head-on collision can be, the fact that the other drivers survived is astonishing. The surviving victims of this accident should seek the services of a North Carolina (NC) personal injury lawyer despite the death of that at-fault driver. It is very likely the insurance company will try to downplay their injuries compared to the death of the young woman. In spite of her death the victims have the right to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A North Carolina (NC) personal injury lawyer will better serve the victims for a fair and adequate compensation for their injuries.
