Couple From Virginia Killed in Kitty Hawk NC Crash

A husband and wife from Virginia were tragically killed on Monday afternoon when a pickup truck hit them as they walked along NC Highway 12 in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.  The wreck happened around 2:30 pm and apparently was the result of the pickup truck driver falling asleep although that fact has not been verified.  Based on available information, it appears that the husband and wife were following North Carolina law and walking along the side of the road facing traffic.  Apparently, the pickup crossed over the center line and hit them from behind.

The woman who was killed was 40 years old and was a school teacher in Montpelier, Virginia where she had taught for the past 13 years.  A child was also hurt in the wreck but fortunately was able to be released from the hospital after receiving care.

The driver of the pickup, who has not been identified, has been charged in the wreck.

West Virginia Couple Killed in NC Tractor-Trailer Crash

A couple from West Virginia were tragically killed on Thursday when a tractor-trailer drove into the back of their pickup truck.  The Stovers had stopped for traffic on Interstate 77 in Yadkin County, North Carolina when a YRC rig pulling two trailers failed to slow down.

According to comments from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, the driver of the YRC rig never hit the brakes before hitting the Stovers and the Stovers were killed on impact.  At this point, it is not clear whether the driver of the YRC rig was distracted as he approached the traffic.

Information regarding this accident indicates that the Stovers had stopped due to construction and that work crews were starting to put out cones in preparation for the road work.  The NCDOT and the Manual For Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) have very specific rules regarding the warnings necessary for interstate lane closures.  In this case, it is unclear whether the warnings were appropriate and whether that contributed to this crash.
