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.

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.
