Car accident in North Carolina leaves 2-year-old injured

At around 8 p.m. on Monday April 8, a head-on collision between a sedan and a minivan left several people injured, including one 2-year-old child. The car accident, which occurred on N.C. 268, is still under investigation by North Carolina authorities. No criminal charges have yet been laid relating to this crash.

Violent crime suspect held in home invasion and murder charge

When the police arrest someone on a homicide charge for a recent event to which there were no witnesses, it's reasonable to question the details and validity of the arrest. That may be the situation developing in the recent violent crime arrest of a 21-year-old man as a suspect in the murder of a 42-year-old North Carolina man in his home a few days earlier. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police announced that they arrested the man without incident.

Man wrongly convicted of first-degree murder is released

In a country professing to guarantee extensive civil rights to criminal defendants, there's no shortage of innocent individuals being sent to prison or to their death. In North Carolina, another man has been released and found to have had nothing to do with a murder for which he was convicted and imprisoned for 17 years. This is the latest in a string of such discoveries in North Carolina.

Fatal car accident leaves 1 dead, 3 injured

A Davidson County, North Carolina man died in a fatal car accident on N.C. 109. The car accident caused considerable damage and was difficult to clean up, leaving roads blocked for almost five hours. The crash resulted in one fatality and three injuries.

Another fatal hit-and-run motorcycle accident in North Carolina

When a collision occurs between a motorcycle and an enclosed vehicle, the risk of serious injury or worse to the biker is obvious. The lack of protection a biker has against the force and weight of a larger vehicle often results in tragic consequences. Unfortunately, this theme played out yet again in a recent North Carolina motorcycle accident in Fayetteville.

Drug charges for marijuana made after stop for traffic violation

One of the most generous sources of drug arrests seems to be where police initially stop a car for a traffic violation and then find drugs. This happened again recently in North Carolina when Henderson County Sheriff's deputies stopped a 2002 Honda Accord and found six pounds of what they described as high grade marijuana. They arrested the occupants, a 26-year old female and a 32-year old male, on drug charges of felony possession of marijuana, felony possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and felony maintaining a vehicle.

Man arrested in domestic violence outburst also hurts deputy

Violence is a self-perpetuating emotional explosion that is obviously difficult for most people to control. Once it triggers, it's liable to attack whatever comes in its path. That's what apparently happened in a North Carolina community recently when a domestic violence case also turned into an assault against a deputy sheriff. A 50-year-old man from Hope Mills was arrested and charged with assault by strangulation, second-degree kidnapping and assault on a female.

Multiple injuries in Wilmington car accident

Everyone who is working to earn a North Carolina driver's license, or who has ever sought insurance coverage, has been taught the philosophy of defensive driving. The idea that you should protect yourself, rather than drive aggressively, is drilled into our heads. However, sometimes our personal efforts to drive safely are outweighed by other drivers, especially immature drivers without the experience of years of driving. Such a driver appears to have caused a 4-car accident on a Wilmington road.
