Accidents are an unfortunate part of life. There will always be someone out there who is dangerously careless or reckless, causing harm to others. It is only right that these people be made to compensate those they hurt for any injuries, damages, or deaths they cause, but that can only happen with the help of a competent attorney who knows the law and has the experience to understand what an accident victim is suffering.
A car crash in Charlotte has left one person dead and another seriously injured, after the driver lost control and ran into a tree.
The Charlotte Fire Department was called to the scene of the accident around 1:30 in the afternoon. It took almost a dozen firefighters to free a victim from the wrecked vehicle.
According to CFD, two people were taken to the hospital, both with life-threatening injuries. The driver was later declared dead.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police say the car was weaving back and forth at a high rate of speed. The driver could not control it anymore, and over-corrected, sliding sideways to run off the road and slam into a tree. There were no other vehicles in the accident.
The driver was a 24-year-old male and the passenger was a 30-year-old male. Both were wearing seatbelt, according to the police. They have not yet determined if alcohol was involved.
