Wrong-way driver causes deadly accident in Cabarrus County

On Behalf of | May 18, 2021 | Motor Vehicle Accidents

Most Charlotte area drivers understand the importance of driving safely. They know that driving safely is the key to making sure they make it to their destination. But occasionally other drivers do not adhere to these safety measures and drive erratically and dangerously. In these situations, they can cause a serious accident like the one recently in Cabarrus County.

Deadly crash on I-85

A wrong-way driver on I-85 recently caused a deadly crash. A red SUV was heading south in the northbound lanes of I-85 between Poplar Tent Road and George W. Liles Parkway when they collided head-on with a gray SUV heading north. The driver of the gray SUV died at the scene while their passenger was taken to a local hospital. The accident is still under investigation and charges may be forthcoming.

Personal injury attorney

No one expects their loved one will be the victim of a serious car accident. Unfortunately, drivers cannot control the driving behavior of everyone they meet on the road. Each year thousands of families are affected by bad drivers causing serious accidents. If a family’s loved one is seriously injured or killed in an accident due to no fault of their own an attorney who specializes in personal injury can help. They understand the family is going through the unimaginable and will work diligently to find out what happened and who is at fault. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

Families affected by the bad driver should know that they have the legal right to hold them responsible for their mistake. A personal injury attorney can make sure that happens.
