NC Car Wreck Shuts Down Highway

When traveling our nation's roadways, it's always important to look carefully at traffic signs, signals, and directions. If you do, you may be able to prevent a crash like this one.

Both eastbound lanes of Interstate 26 near Weaverville, North Carolina (NC), were shut down on Wednesday, January 19th, 2011, due to a wrong way accident.  

The crash happened near the Jupiter-Barnardsville exit because of a single vehicle going against the flow of traffic on the highway. Two people were taken to Mission Hospital as a result-the vehicles involved had Tennessee and Virginia license tags.

The N.C. Highway Patrol reopened the lanes at approximately 8:40 p.m. that evening, an hour after the accident occurred.

If you are driving in an unfamiliar area, look at maps or use a GPS to determine which way to go before you start out. Wrong way accidents are entirely avoidable if you think and plan ahead.

If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident, contact our firm today to discuss your case.
We have been able to achieve excellent results for our clients in the past, some of whom were able to collect even more in damages than they anticipated. 

However, no two cases are exactly alike, and we cannot predict the likely results in your case until we review it. We also can't guarantee that all claims will meet our rigorous standards, but we will certainly discuss your options for pursuing your claim, and collecting potential compensation.
