Six Injured in Head-On Collision

Comments (0)
Six people were injured after a head-on collision in North Carolina this weekend. According to the Salisbury Post, the accident occurred around 6:45 p.m. on Sunday night when a Hyundai traveled north on N.C. 801 collided with a Ford heading south. Early reports claim that when the Ford crossed the center line, it hit the Hyundai head-on. The accident is still being fully investigated.


The Woodleaf Fire Department responded quickly. Firefighters were able to free the driver of the Hyundai, who was pinned inside the car. Four passengers from the Hyunadai and two from the Ford were injured. Victims were taken to a local hospital. One had to be airlifted by helicopter to the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.

Woodleaf Fire Department responded with several pieces of equipment, and firefighters were able to free the Hyundai’s driver, who was pinned in the vehicle.

This is surely a scary time for everyone involved. Thankfully, no one was killed. Still, our thoughts go out to the victims and their families. It’s no doubt that they have a lot of questions in their minds about their rights and responsibilities.

As a Carolina personal injury attorney, I’ve handled cases like this one before. I’ve seen the statistics about head-on collisions and know how lucky these passengers are to be alive. Sadly, most head-on collisions result in death. 75% of head-on crashes occur on two lane highways without a divider down the middle – which is exactly what happened in this incident.
