Ocracoke and Hatteras Island North Carolina Power Outage Affects Thousands

As a result, over ten thousand people have been evacuated and numerous businesses are shut down.  The losses from this mishap by the construction company will certainly be very high both for visitors and local businesses.

Interstate 85 Wreck in Warren County, NC Results in Serious Injuries and Fatality

A very serious wreck on Interstate 85 in Warren County, North Carolina on Friday has resulted in one death.  The facts of the accident are not entirely clear but it is reported that three vehicles had slowed for traffic including at least one tractor-trailer.  A second tractor-trailer did not slow in time and rear-ended the first tractor trailer.  The second tractor-trailer then caught fire.  The second tractor-trailer was then struck from behind by another vehicle.  The driver of the second tractor-trailer was killed when his truck incinerated.

At this point, it is not clear whether the second tractor-trailer driver, who died in the crash, was actually at fault or whether he would have survived had his truck not been struck from behind.  In serious fatal accidents such as this, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol accident reconstruction unit would typically conduct a thorough investigation in order to determine the sequence of events and causes of the collision.

SUV Crashes Into Burlington NC Apartment Injuring Shauneen Roy

A very unusual and scary accident happened Sunday morning in Burlington, North Carolina when an SUV crashed into an apartment building causing injuries to a resident named Shauneen Roy.  The incident happened on Sunday morning and involved a neighbor’s Ford SUV.  According to available information, the Ford SUV somehow malfunctioned and rolled down an embankment and into the apartment occupied by Ms. Roy.  Ms. Roy was injured and transported to a local hospital.  Her apartment and two other units were damaged.

It is not clear why the Ford SUV malfunctioned.  However, it seems clear that this incident was not the fault of Ms. Roy who now has incurred medical bills and damage to her property.  Under these circumstances, she should be entitled to compensation for her losses from either Ford or the owner of the vehicle.
