On March 13, 2015, North Carolina police in Durham were planning a meeting in the District Attorney's Office to decide whether to go forward with more charges against a 41-year-old Durham man responsible for a fatal car crash that killed a 53-year-old youth counselor. The drunk driver was going southbound on Fayetteville Road when he struck the counselor's car from behind, causing him to go into oncoming traffic. A local woman was also hit in the crash.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department responded to an accident involving a motorcycle that killed one person on Sept. 27. The collision occurred on North Tryon Street early in the morning when a Dodge Caravan went across the double yellow divider.
