NC Truck Accident Leaves Two Injured, Driver Charged

According to WXII 12, a tractor-trailer driver has been charged following a crash that closed part of Highway 52 for hours Tuesday morning. The crash occurred at approximately 5:30 a.m. on Highway 52 South near King in Stokes County, NC.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was said to not be paying attention and may have fallen asleep before the crash, causing the vehicle to travel off the road to the right, hit a guardrail, go into an embankment, and overturn.

The tractor-trailer was carrying insulation, and two people who were in the vehicle were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The driver of the tractor-trailer was charged with reckless driving.

At 9 a.m., a tow company was still working to remove the tractor-trailer from the embankment. The Department of Transportation estimated that Highway 52 would fully reopen by 12:30 p.m.

Filing Truck Accident Lawsuits

Attorney commentary Kristen Beightol, an attorney with experience in truck accident law in North Carolina, sat down with us to share her insight on seeking justice for those affected by semi-truck collisions. She has years of experience filing truck accident lawsuits getting injured victims the compensation they deserve.

"As an experienced truck accident lawyer, I understand the unique dangers posed by large commercial trucks. Trucking companies have a responsibility to ensure their trucks and truck drivers are following all applicable laws and regulations and are keeping the roads safe. When trucking companies fail to do this and an accident occurs, the victims of the accident have the legal right to seek compensation from the trucking company."

"In such cases, victims are often entitled to recover damages for their medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses suffered as a result of the accident. Additionally, victims may be able to recover punitive damages if the trucking company acted with reckless disregard for the safety of other motorists. It is important for victims to understand their rights and to seek the advice of an experienced truck accident lawyer to ensure they receive the compensation they are due."
