Husband and Wife in North Carolina Killed by Drowsy Driver
For example, a fatal accident in Taylorsville, North Carolina (NC) was caused by a driver who fell asleep while driving. The at-fault driver was heading east on Millersville Road when he fell asleep, crossed the center line and slammed head-on into a Toyota 4Runner that was going west. NC Highway Patrol stated that both cars were going at the posted speed limit of 55 mph, according to the Hickory Daily Record.
Aipin C. See and his wife, Na Bou, were killed in this wreck. Both were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Our deepest sympathies go out to the victim's family. The sudden loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences anyone has to suffer through, but the experience is made even worse when it is clear that the tragic accident could have been prevented.
If only the at-fault driver had stopped for a cup of coffee or can of Red Bull, maybe this terrible NC car accident could have been avoided. Falling asleep while driving is grounds for negligence and the relatives of the victims should consult with a wrongful death attorney in NC to discuss their legal options.
