Motorcyclist James Wright Seriously Injured in Staley NC Crash

A gentleman named James Wright was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash on Sunday afternoon near Staley, North Carolina.  The crash happened on NC Highway 49 at the intersection with Whites Chapel Road at around 3:10 pm.

According to available information, a woman in a Honda SUV started to turn left onto White Chapel Road from NC 49 and then turned back to her right and hit Mr. Wright as he was traveling in the same direction.  The impact forced Mr. Wright off the road and he struck a utility pole.

Mr. Wright sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, North Carolina for treatment.

At this point there is no indication of charges against the woman driver but it would appear that she should be charged with at least a safe movement violation.

Raleigh Scooter Accident Involving Police Car Results in Two Deaths

A serious accident involving a Raleigh police car and a scooter happened early on Wednesday morning in northeast Raleigh.

The wreck occurred on Skycrest Drive near the intersection of Hill Street.  There is very little information about the accident except that it happened around 3:00 am.  As a result of the wreck, the scooter ended up under the front of the police car.  Two gentlemen riding on the scooter were killed.

It is not clear how this terrible accident happened.  Accidents involving scooters and bicycles at night can be tricky from a liability perspective and quickly securing evidence from the accident scene can make the difference in determining who is at fault.  In cases similar to this, our firm will typically send an accident engineer to the accident scene to take detailed measurements of all of the physical evidence and photograph and roadway markings that may be related to the accident.  Using well-established engineering principals, we can often determine how the accident happened and who was at fault.
