Teen Girl Killed in Wreck on Linville Road

The life of a 19-year-old girl was taken in a two-car accident that took place on Linville Road in Oak Ridge, North Carolina (NC). The crash happened when her boyfriend, who was driving, went off on the right side of the road. He overcorrected and slammed into a Dodge pickup truck.

Four other people were injured in the crash. Three of the victims were taken toMosesConeHospital.
According to My Fox 8, speed was a factor in the accident. While alcohol was ruled out as a factor, the girl’s father did find empty bottles of liquor underneath the seats of the civic.

My deepest condolences go out to the victim’s father and the rest of her family. It’s truly heartbreaking when a young life, full of promise, is lost because of the reckless decisions of a driver.

The girl’s father is sending a message out to teenagers with the goal that if they see the pictures of this horrific wreck, they will exercise more caution on the road.

The father should consider speaking with a wrongful death attorney to discuss his legal options. Another way to send a message to young drivers is to make sure that speeding, reckless drivers are prosecuted to the full extent of the law, both in the criminal and civil justice systems. To learn more about the wrongful death claims process, take a moment to read this article which was written by a wrongful death attorney in North Carolina.
