VA car accident injury lawyerA four-vehicle accident on Gum Branch Road near Richlands, North Carolina (NC), claimed the life of a 67-year-old man. The driver who initiated the fatal crash, has been charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle in addition to failure to reduce speed.

According to JDNews.com, the at-fault driver of a 2011 Volkswagen rear-ended two cars stopped in front of him and then had a head-on collision with a 1980 Oldsmobile. The driver of the Oldsmobile was taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital but later died from his injuries.
