A car accident that occurred on Midway School Rd in Davidson County, North Carolina (NC) has left three people in serious condition.

Ryan Fitzgerald was traveling on Midway School Road when ran off the right side of the road, causing him to overcorrect his vehicle. He crossed in to the oncoming lane and struck another vehicle head-on. His car then went to the other side of the road before coming back on to the lane and striking the vehicle for a second time.

Ryan Fitzgerald was taken to Baptist Hospital where he is suffering from severe injuries sustained in the car accident. The driver and passenger of the vehicle that was struck head-on, Jay Kelly Hedrick and Deborah Hedrick, were taken to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. Deborah Hedrick is in stable condition, but Jay Kelly Hedrick is in serious condition.

Head-on collisions can be serious, even deadly. My colleague, Jim Lewis, recently wrote an article about just how quickly head-on collisions can occur. More often then not, the driver that is struck does not even realize an accident has happened until it is too late.
