Shirley Monk Killed in Mount Olive, NC Crash

A 69 year old woman named Shirley Monk was tragically killed on Saturday in a crash near Mount Olive, North Carolina.  The crash happened around 12:18 p.m. on U.S. Highway 117.  According to available information, Ms. Monk was traveling northbound on US 117 when she was hit from behind by a Toyota SUV driven by a teenager.

After the impact, Ms. Monk’s vehicle was forced off the roadway.  Tragically, she did not survive the collision.  Initial reports indicate that inattention and speed on the part of the teenager driver of the Toyota SUV contributed to this collision.  At this time, it is not clear whether that means that the driver was using her cellphone at the time of the collision or was distracted in some other way.  The NC State Highway Patrol should perform a significant investigation of this collision to determine every contributing factor to this crash.

Ms. Monk was from Clinton, North Carolina.

Greensboro NC Fire at 3100 Summit Avenue Results in Five Deaths

A terrible and tragic story has come out of Greensboro, North Carolina after a fire at an apartment complex has resulted in the deaths of five children.  The fire happened at 3100 Summit Avenue near Cone Boulevard on Saturday morning.

According to available information, the fire started sometime before 4:00 am and was controlled by 4:15 am by local firefighters.  However, five children, all under the age of 8, died due to the fire.

Reports indicate that a parent of the children had complained to the landlord about fires in the kitchen before this incident.  There are also reports that firefighters were at the complex on Sunday installing smoke alarms and changing batteries in existing smoke alarms.

Based on the available information, it would apparent that the landlord bears significant responsibility for allowing this tragedy to happen.  While nothing can bring back the lives of the little children killed in this incident, it seems clear that this landlord needs to significantly change how they manage this rental apartment complex.
