North Carolina Drunk Driver Accident: Ambulance Struck by a Drunk Driver This Past Weekend Severely Injuring an Infant on Board

February 13th, 2018 Drunk Driving Accidents

An accident involving a drunk driver earlier this week resulted in critical injuries to an infant after the ambulance it was riding in was struck by a drunk driver on Highway U.S. 52 in North Carolina.

Both vehicles were traveling southbound on U.S. 52 when a car collided with the ambulance resulting in both drivers losing control.

The driver that caused this wreck is being charged with driving while impaired, failure to reduce speed, and driving with no license. The driver who caused the accident had a blood alcohol level of .19 which is .11 above the legal limit (.08) in North Carolina.

Unfortunately, the infant who suffered from critical injuries later passed away. Our deepest condolences go out to the families involved in this tragic accident. To read the full story click here. 

Drinking and driving is a preventable, careless act that puts everyone at risk. There is no excuse to get behind the wheel intoxicated. Here are some signs to look out for while on the road to detect a drunk driver:

  • Driving in the center of the road or lane
  • Swerving
  • Abrupt turns or illegal turns
  • Inappropriate stopping
  • Erratic braking
  • Driving without headlights

All of these are signs to look out for while on the road. If you think someone is drunk driving pull over and call 9-1-1 immediately to report the driver. Make sure to give a detailed description of the car, driver and if possible get the license number to report.

Wonderful & professional people. I had a stigma about lawyers, that they were like those seedy characters on TV. But when I was injured at work I was forced to contact a lawyer. I saw the TV commercial for Daggett Shuler and felt like I would give these guys a chance. Wow! Not what I expected at all! Very professional and honest, not dog eat dog like I expected. They handled my case nicely and just took over all the things I had been tying to cover and handle myself so that I could focus on getting well. They waded through the impossible regulations and paperwork of the Workers Compensation claim and got me a handsome settlement. Not to mention the constant support I received while this process took place. I would highly recommend Daggett Shuler to anyone who has need of legal representation. Thank you guys for changing my perception of lawyers, that there are definitely some good ones out there.
