As a personal injury attorney it's amazing how many sad personal injury stories come across my desk. This time two children were killed and their parents badly injured in a car accident Saturday afternoon when their car ran off the road and hit a tree in Surry County, North Carolina (NC), authorities said. The children who were only 9 and 12 tragically died at the scene.
My thoughts go out to their parents who were taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where they were listed in critical condition.
So what caused such a terrible accident? We're not sure yet, the accident happened about 2:30 pm on McBride Road in the Flat Rock community. It was raining at the time, but authorities are not sure whether that contributed to the wreck and the accident remains under investigation.
