Saturday, the 10th of August, three cars collided where the N.C. 87 and N.C. 11 meet. It
was three in the afternoon, when a couple in their seventies merged their
Camry into another car's lane. The second car rammed into the Camry
at 55 miles per hour. The impact sent the Camry into another car. In total,
9 people were injured in the accident. Two of them, the older couple,
died from the collision. According to the N. C. Highway Patrol, everyone
had been wearing seat belts, and no one was going to file any charges.
While no one in particular may be held responsible for this sad accident,
tens of thousands of people die in
car accidents every year. Tragically, many of those accidents were preventable. It may
be the other driver's fault. Perhaps someone behind the wheel is under
the influence, ran through a red light, or is distracted by a text. A
car manufacturer could be on the hook for your accident as well. If defective
tire, faulty steering, or a misfiring airbag caused or contributed to
your accident, then you may be owed compensation from an auto product
