Small accidents or non-catastrophic vehicle crashes are a reasonably common occurrence in a person's life. You will probably be involved in a few throughout your lifetime-whether you hit another car or another person accidentally injuries you. However, what happens when that seemingly painless accident from weeks ago suddenly becomes-literally and figuratively-a pain in the neck?
A local man is dead following a fatal accident on August 3. North Carolina police have very little information about the motorcycle accident so far, but the investigation is ongoing. No charges have been filed in association with this tragic case as of this writing.
A motorcycle rider who has not been identified by police is dead after a serious accident, according to local authorities. The motorcycle accident happened on the late morning of July 5.

No one plans to become involved in a Wilmington car accident, but sometimes there is no escaping it. In the event of a crash, options exist for the injured party, or their family if a death occurs. Car accident injuries can often result in the need for long-term medical care, a cost that can quickly add up and become financially burdensome. When this happens, victims can often reach out and seek assistance with their cases.
A recent North Carolina car accident caused several injuries and ended in the death of one person. The crash occurred in the afternoon when a Honda overcorrected and collided with another vehicle. The car accident snarled traffic in the area for well over an hour.
A Wilmington woman involved in a hit-and-run accident that seriously injured a young man has pleaded guilty to charges of fleeing the scene of the accident. The woman has been sentenced to serve two months in jail and will also undergo three years of supervised probation. The accident victim is still recovering from the injuries he sustained last summer.
When the weather is foul and roads are slick, motorists in North Carolina have a heightened duty to drive carefully. A slick surface can easily cause a car to lose control, which appears to be what happened in a six-vehicle accident along Interstate 40 recently. At least one person suffered injuries in the incident.
No one in Wilmington wants to be involved in a serious car accident. Yet these types of incidents take place everyday across the state and the nation as a whole. In the worst cases, a car accident can lead to serious injury or even death to those involved. Such was the case on a recent Saturday when a car accident left several people hurt and one young girl perhaps fighting for her life.The accident happened on U.S. 17 in Holly Ridge. The highway had to be closed down afterwards as police and rescue crews worked to help the injured and clear debris. In total, three vehicles were involved in the crash, and the driver of one vehicle was charged with drunk driving. As a result of her injuries, one 13-year-old girl had to be airlifted to a local hospital when rescuers found her unconscious and suffering from internal bleeding. According to police, the incident happened at around 5:30 in the evening.
Car accidents in Wilmington, North Carolina, and elsewhere are unique in that it is not always possible to know the extent to which someone has been injured simply by looking at the scene of the crash. Sometimes, a head-on collision that leaves two or more cars mangled beyond recognition results in both drivers walking away with minor scrapes. Other times, a simple fender bender results in death. And there are even car accidents where a person appears fine in the immediate aftermath of a collision, only to suffer serious injury or death in the following hours or days.
