North Carolina Inmates Injured in Gates County NC Van Crash

A van transporting ten inmates was involved in a serious crash in Gates County, North Carolina on Sunday.  The crash happened on Highway 13 near the intersection with Highway 158 sometime Sunday morning.  The van driver apparently fell asleep at the wheel and allowed the vehicle to run off the road.  The driver the over-corrected and flipped on the other side of the highway.

At least one inmate suffered serious injuries and all ten inmates were transported to the hospital.  The van was transporting inmates from Carrsville, Virginia to Vanceboro, North Carolina.  The van was owned by a private company called US Corrections, LLC.

This is a unique case because the van transporting the inmates was owned and operated by a private contractor.  Therefore, the injured inmates would have potential claims against the driver and US Corrections, LLC which can be brought in the North Carolina general courts of justice.
