Jose Sepulveda Killed in North Carolina Crash on Interstate 77

A gentleman named Jose Sepulveda was tragically killed on October 28, 2019 in a crash on Interstate 77 when a tractor trailer failed to slow down.

The wreck happened at nearly the same location where a woman named Jennifer Burton was killed on October 27.  In both wrecks, traffic was slowed and a tractor-trailer failed to reduce speed and hit the rear of waiting vehicles.

In the wreck involving Mr. Sepulveda, a total of six people were transported to hospitals for care including four children.  Mr. Sepulveda was from New York.  Charges are pending against the driver of the tractor-trailer.

As we have discussed in prior posts, the consistency of severe accidents on this stretch of highway is very concerning.  Apparently there is construction along this stretch of roadway that is causing traffic to slow.  The NCDOT has very specific rules regarding signage during construction projects and hopefully the traffic warning signs have been placed properly.  If not, the general contractor, and possibly subcontractors, may be partly responsible for these terrible wrecks.
