A very serious hit-and-run accident near Denton, North Carolina has resulted in very serious injuries to a gentleman named Gilbert Temberton.  The accident happened around 5:00 pm on Wednesday on N.C.

The driver of the Honda, Shelley Steffons, and her passenger Richard Rickman were also seriously injured and taken to Wake Forest Baptist.

Under the laws of North Carolina, Mr. Temberton, Ms. Steffons and Mr. Rickman all have very serious claims against Mr. Jenkins for causing this wreck.  However, since Mr. Jenkins was driving without a license, there is a concern that he may not have sufficient insurance to cover these very significant injury claims.  If that is the case, the victims may need to make claims against there own auto policies for uninsured or underinsured motorists coverage.

Sunset Beach NC Kite Severely Injures Beachgoer

A very serious incident happened Tuesday evening at Sunset Beach, North Carolina when a kite struck a beachgoer in the head.  The incident happened at around 5:10 pm near 32nd Street.  According to the limited information available, a kite used for kite surfing hit the beachgoer causing a very severe neck injury.

While this is certainly an unusual situation, it would seem that anyone operating such a kite has a duty to keep the kite under control.  In this case, the victim would appear to have a claim against anyone responsible for the kite.

Austin Webster Killed In Raleigh, NC Crash With Concrete Truck

A gentleman from Pittsboro, North Carolina was tragically killed Friday night when the pickup truck he was driving was hit from behind by a concrete truck.  The crash happened just before 5:00 pm on Interstate 40 near the intersection with South Saunders Street.

According to available information, the driver of the concrete truck failed to reduce speed and caused the collision.  The driver of the concrete truck was charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.  Two other drivers were also injured – Julisa Brown and Nereida Tapia-Guzman who were both transported to Wakemed for treatment.

This is obviously a very tragic accident.  Whenever a wreck such as this occurs, it raises the suspicion that the driver of the concrete truck was possibly distracted when the collision occurred.  It would be important in this case to secure the driver’s cell phone records to determine whether the cell phone was in use when the wreck occurred.  Additionally, it would be important to download all electronic data from the truck to determine if and when the driver applied the truck’s brakes.
