One Man Killed in North Carolina Car Accident

Comments Off

A group of five people traveling through North Carolina were involved in a single car accident on Saturday. One man was killed and all the others were hospitalized with injuries. The driver of the car is 80-years-old.

The driver was driving north on I-95 through Four Oaks, N.C., about 12:30 p.m. Saturday when he ran off the right side of the road in a 2004 Ford. Sullivan over-corrected and crossed over the northbound lanes and into the median, then drove back off the right side of the road before striking an embankment. The car then overturned on the driver’s side and struck a highway sign, police said.

According to news reports, the driver might have fallen asleep at the wheel.

The police are still investigating but do not believe that speed was a factor in the accident.
