A 45-year-old Charlotte man has been arrested for his part in causing a fatal North Carolina Truck Accident earlier this year. The Winston-Salem Police Department confirmed earlier this week the man would face a single misdemeanor charge of death by motor vehicle.
A story published by the Winston-Salem Journal stated the crash happened just after 4 p.m. on Monday, May 6, along U.S. 52 near the Clemmonsville Road exit. The accused was driving a delivery truck for a food distributor along the southbound lanes of the highway when he suddenly veered across the median and into the path of an oncoming car. The driver of the car, a 41-year-old motorist from Kernersville, who was heading north on U.S. 52, did not have time to swerve away from the oncoming truck and the two vehicles collided. The delivery truck then skidded into the path of two other vehicles before coming to a rest on its side.
The impact of the initial collision killed the driver from Kernersville and left an 18-year-old passenger in the delivery truck injured.
An investigation determined the truck driver’s negligence was to blame for causing the crash and he was arrested and charged this past Wednesday.
