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.
A woman has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run accident in North Carolina. The accused drunk driver apparently struck a pedestrian with her vehicle and then fled the scene of the crash. She has since been arrested for her role in the accident.
A North Carolina woman accused of causing a fatal car accident about a year ago will finally be tried for her role in the crash.

A 22-year-old North Carolina man was struck and killed by an SUV on April 7 while walking on Potter Road in Wesley Chapel.

The consequences of motor vehicle accidents in Wilmington, North Carolina, and across the state can prove devastating, and those whose conduct caused the accident should be held responsible for their negligent actions. While one would hope that the at-fault driver would stay at the scene of the motorcycle accident and help render aid if necessary, many instead choose to try to run.
Countless people lose their lives on North Carolina roads every year. Losing a loved one in a car accident is devastating, but the sense of injustice and pain felt by families is worsened when the driver seems to have little or no remorse. The mother of a North Carolina man killed in a car accident in May has once again appealed for information to catch her son's killer, in the hope that he or she will be found and brought to justice.
