A man and a woman were injured in an accident on a moped after they were struck by a car in New Hanover County, North Carolina (NC).

The moped accident occurred in Wilmington at the intersection of Carolina Beach Road and Medical Center Drive. An Infiniti was turning on to Carolina Beach Road from Medical Center Drive when the driver struck the moped. The man and women on the moped were taken to the New Hanover Regional Medical Center. The driver of the Infiniti was not injured, but may face charges.

Mopeds, like motorcycles, can be difficult for other drivers to see, and accidents like the one in Wilmington are all too common in North Carolina (NC). Often mopeds and motorcycles can get in to a driver’s blind spot, causing the driver to hit the smaller vehicle.

As drivers we should always remember to share the road with smaller vehicles like motorcycles and mopeds. The injuries drivers of these types of vehicles can sustain are far greater then when two cars get in to an accident.
