Car accident results in Castle Hayne woman's death

A 64-year-old Castle Hayne woman was tragically killed in a car accident on the afternoon of March 15 at about 2:30 p.m. The woman was driving a sedan and was turning off of an Interstate 140 ramp onto Castle Hayne Road when she was struck by a pickup, which was said to have run a red light. The truck slammed into the sedan's driver side door, and the victim died as a result of her injuries in the car accident. Castle Hayne is located not far north of Wilmington

The 20-year old pickup truck driver was on his way to file a job application after leaving his grandmother's funeral. He was traveling north on Castle Hayne Road when he apparently became distracted while searching for the turn and ran a red light. Police have charged the man with running a red light and misdemeanor death by vehicle.

While authorities indicated the accused man was remorseful after the car accident, this tragedy unfortunately highlights the dangers of distracted driving. Even if a driver takes his or her eyes of the road for just a second, devastating accidents can occur.

In North Carolina, families may seek financial compensation when the negligent actions of a party, whether intentional or not, results in the death of another. The family who has been victimized in this tragic car accident will surely want answers about the death of their loved one. Seeking recourse through the court system may result in holding negligent parties responsible for their actions and offer some solace to the grieving family.
