A traigc accident has claimed the life of a car driver on US 221 North near Marion, NC.
The accident apparently happened when a dump truck driver failed to secure a load and allowed a rock to fall off which then went through the windshield of a car killing the driver. The driver of the dump truck has been charged with failure to secure the load.
The family members of the victim of this accident will most certainly have a significant wrongful death claim under North Carolina law against the driver of the dump truck. The laws of North Carolina may also implicate additional responsible parties if an investigation indicates that others were involved with placing the load on the dump truck. A thorough investigation of the facts of this tragic accident should be undertaken quickly to determine how this preventable accident happened.
