An untold amount of sorrow and anguish surrounds a quadruple fatal car accident that recently occurred at the intersection of Highways 258 and 53 in Jacksonville, North Carolina (NC). A Hyundai sped toward the intersection at 100 mph, ran a red light and slammed into a Toyota SUV. The driver and two other passengers in the Hyundai died. The female driver of the SUV and wife of a US Marine was also killed and the only survivor of the accident was a six-month old baby in the SUV. A properly installed car seat is credited with saving the infant. The frustrating part of this accident is that the now deceased driver who caused all this pain and suffering was due in court on previous charges including drunk driving, speeding, and reckless driving to endanger.
A wrongful death claim could be filed for all the victims who were killed as a result of this negligence and the victim's survivors are entitled to damages as a result of the improper conduct/negligence. Even when a drunk driver has little or no car insurance of their own, car insurance policies normally include “uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage just for such a circumstance. This coverage actually helps those injured or killed, not the drunk driver who was negligent. As I said before no amount of money will be able to replace this terrible loss of life. But for the guardians of the six-month old baby who will now never know his mother the concern should be picking up the pieces and getting through the grieving process.
