Thrana Frye Killed Near Lincolnton NC in Crash With Dump Truck Trailer

A woman named Thrana Frye was killed in a tragic wreck on Friday afternoon when she was hit by a trailer being pulled by a dmup truck.

The wreck happened on Bethel Church Road just north of Lincolnton, NC at around 12:30 pm.  North Carolina State Highway Patrol troopers indicate that the dump truck was pulling a large flat-bed trailer that crossed the center-line into Ms. Frye’s lane as the truck entered a curve.

Ms. Frye, who was 48 years old and from Iron Station, NC, was driving a Nissan Maxima.  Ms. Frye was pronounced dead at the scene.

At this time there is no indication of charges against the dump truck driver.  However, it would seem apparent that the dump truck driver failed to maintain proper control of his vehicle and that this resulted in the death of Mr. Frye.

Thrana Frye Killed in Lincolnton NC Crash With Dump Truck

LINCOLNTON, NC (February 3, 2020) – A woman named Thrana Frye was tragically killed on Friday afternoon in a serious crash just north of Lincolnton, North Carolina.

The crash happened on Bethel Church Road at approximately 12:25 pm. According to available information, a dump truck pulling a trailer entered a sharp curve at which time the trailer crossed the center line and hit the vehicle driven by Ms. Frye.  Mr. Frye, who was 48 years old and from Iron Station, North Carolina, was pronounced dead at the accident scene.

Initial reports suggest that snowy conditions on the road may have contributed to the wreck.  However, any vehicle operated on the roadways of North Carolina must drive at a safe speed for the conditions then existing.  In this case, it is apparent that the truck that was towing the trailer was traveling too fast for the existing conditions.  In addition, anyone towing a trailer on North Carolina roadways must do so in a manner that ensures that the trailer travels in the same path of the towing vehicle.

This is obviously a tragic accident but one that appears to have been preventable had the person towing trailer driven in a manner required by North Carolina law.

Narada Miller Seriously Injured in Jacksonville NC Fire at Hinson Arms Apartments

Apartment building fire in Jacksonville, North Carolina kills young girl and seriously injures her father.

JACKSONVILLE, NC (January 30, 2020) – A gentleman named Narada Miller was severely injured and his young daughter, Zahria Miller, was killed in a fire on Saturday, January 25, at an apartment building in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

The fire at the Hinson Arms Apartments was first reported to emergency responders at just after 1:00 a.m. early on Saturday morning.  Multiple fire departments responded to the blaze but ultimately 12 apartments were totally destroyed.  Eight of the twelve apartments were occupied but the only victims appear to be Mr. Narada Miller and his daughter Zahria.  Narada Miller, who is 37 years old, was sent to a nearby trauma hospital for treatment and there is no indication of his condition.  His daughter, Zahria, was only 9 years old.

Initial reports indicate that the fire was not suspicious.  However, the fire investigation has not concluded and the cause and origin of this fire are still undetermined.  There are numerous agencies involved with the investigation including the NC State Bureau of Investigation.  If the investigation indicates that the fire started due to a maintenance issue at the apartment building, Mr. Miller and his family may have claims against the owners of the Hinson Arms Apartments.

In North Carolina, apartment buildings constructed after 2006 are required to have properly functioning sprinkler systems.  However, apartment buildings constructed prior to 2006 are not required to have sprinklers.  All landlords, regardless of the age of construction of an apartment building, are required to have working smoke detectors.  In this case, it is not known whether the apartment building was new enough to have required sprinklers and, if so, whether the sprinklers were properly functioning.  It is also not known whether the required smoke detectors were properly functioning.

Conducting a prompt and thorough investigation is essential to determining whether the owner of the Hinson Arms Apartments may be at fault for the tragic loss of Zahria Miller and the injuries to her father Narada Miller.  This investigation may include retaining independent cause and origin fire experts to determine the reason this tragic fire started in addition to multiple interviews with other tenants of the apartment building to understand the conditions at the building.
