The crash occurred about a mile south of Roseboro, NC. The man, of McGee Church Road in Clinton, travelled north in a 2004 Chevrolet pickup registered to Premium Standard Farms in Clinton, when he crossed the center line as he exited a curve. The pickup hit a southbound 1994 Nissan pickup.
The death of the Nissan pickup driver was a reminder not to drink and drive. North Carolina has laws making it a crime to drive with a blood alcohol concentration at or above 0.08 percent (0.08 g alcohol per 100 ml blood). Drinking alcohol before driving in NC slows reaction time and impairs judgment.
The family members of the Nissan pickup driver might have to file a wrongful death case with the assistance of North Carolina personal injury lawyers against the responsible parties. The death of a loved one is a tragic event that may never fully be put in the past. It is scary how quickly our lives can be changed forever or even ended by an auto accident.
