Martha Peterson of Kenly NC Killed by Impaired Driver

A woman named Martha Peterson was driving a daycare van when she was hit by an impaired driver on Barber Mill Road yesterday in Johnston County, North Carolina.  The wreck happened just after 4:00 pm when a man driving a Bizzy Bee Plumbing truck hit the daycare van head-on.

The driver of the plumbing truck apparently crossed the center-line.  This driver was arrested as the scene and charged with felony death by motor vehicle and driving while impaired.

Ms. Peterson was 39 years-old and from Kenly, North Carolina.  There were also several children in the daycare van when the wreck happened.  Reports indicate that several of the children were injured but there is no indication regarding the severity of injuries.  Hopefully, these kids are all OK.

James McCandless Killed in Pink Hill NC Accident

A gentleman named James McCandless was tragically killed on Thursday afternoon when he was hit by a car while walking along NC Highway 11 near Pink Hill, North Carolina.

According to available information, Mr. McCandless was a resident of an assisted living facility but was out walking in the road when he was hit by a southbound car.  The assisted living facility was less than a mile from the site of the accident.  Under these circumstances, we would have some questions as to why Mr. McCandless was away from the assisted living facility and whether he should have been supervised at the time of the wreck.

Mr. McCandless was 52 years old at the time of this accident and reports indicate he was from Jacksonville, North Carolina.

Durham NC Pedestrian Hit and Injured on Emperor Boulevard

A gentleman was seriously injured on Emperor Boulevard in Durham on Tuesday afternoon.  The incident happened when the man was walking in a crosswalk somewhere between the intersections of I-540 and South Miami Boulevard.

The driver of the vehicle told investigating police that he was blinded by the sun.  The driver was also operating the motor vehicle with a suspended license.

The issue of being blinded by the sun will not protect the driver form liability in this case.  Under North Carolina law, all driver’s must operate the vehicle appropriately under the circumstances.  If a driver is blinded by the sun, the driver must slow down and operate the vehicle in such a manner as to allow the operator to see and yield when appropriate as apparently was the case here.
