Wrong-Way Car Crash in High Point, NC Leaves One Injured, One Dead
According to WFMY News 2, the driver of an Infinity was traveing eastbound on Greensboro Road when he crossed over into the westbound lanes. The Infinity slammed head-on into a Ford pick-up truck driven by Jamestown, NC, resident Michael Litchfield. Michael Autrey, of Julian NC, was a passenger in the pickup truck and suffered injuries as a result of the wrong-way wreck. A passenger in the Infinity, who was a relative of the at-fault driver, died in the wreck. Police charged the at-fault driver with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and failing to comply with drivers license restrictions.
Police do not suspect that speeding nor impairment by alcohol or drugs contributed to causing the fatal wrong-way car crash. So what exactly caused this awful accident? Was it simply driver inattention, or was he distracted in some way? We will have to wait and see what the accident report reveals.
The victims who were hurt in the pickup truck should consider speaking to a North Carolina injury lawyer to discuss their legal options. Why? Because the fact remains that the at-fault driver apparently failed to comply with drivers license restrictions, which is a conscious, irresponsible act.
