trucker faces dwi charge after 3 die in wreck
this accident happened at the exit we live off in durham, we passed it on the way home last night. the life-flight chopper was still parked on the highway.
the trucker had barreled into this pickup truck, then continued on … hitting three other vehicles before stopping. one of the cars burst into flames, the driver was unable to get out. it burned so badly authorities were unable to identify the type of car it was. three of the four drivers were killed on impact. the fourth person was driving a box truck, which probably saved his life.
i’m absolutely outraged and heartbroken by this story. the trucker had no alcohol in his system, but was under the influence of drugs. marijuana, methadone and drug paraphernalia were found in his truck.
my heart goes out to the families involved in this horrific accident.
it’s such a startling reminder as we’re out on the roads this weekend, be alert. be a defensive driver, be aware. and please be safe.
