North Carolina teacher killed while assisting driver in crash

If you drive southeast of Raleigh for about three hours, you’ll come to Onslow County, North Carolina. The coastal area was recently the site of a pair of crashes that resulted in injuries and a fatality, news outlets reported.

An Onslow County school teacher, 46, died from injuries she sustained in the crash, according to law enforcement officials.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol said the first accident occurred when a burgundy GMC vehicle ran a stop sign and crashed into a white Nissan at around 7:15 pm. An eyewitness said a woman was driving the GMC at about 25 mph when she ran the stop sign.

The eighth-grade social studies teacher and two other people were assisting a driver who had been involved in that initial wreck when a red truck came around a bend in the road and struck all three. The teacher died days later from her injuries. The other two were hospitalized with unspecified injuries. Their conditions were not available at the time the news report was filed.

The driver of the red truck has been identified as a 78-year-old man, the report stated. He has apparently been detained, though it is not clear if he faces charges for his role in the fatal accident or if he is being held on unrelated allegations.

We do not yet know what caused the second crash, but we do know that distraction, excessive speed and impairment are often involved in these kinds of tragic incidents.

If you or a family member has been hurt by a distracted, drunk or drugged driver, contact a Raleigh personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options.
