Car Accidents in North Carolina
Intersections are some of the most dangerous places on our roads and one of the most common places on our roads for accidents. In one year’s time in the U.S., over 2.5 million intersection accidents took place in the entirety of the U.S. due to the recklessness of others. These accidents take place in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. When a driver is speeding or breezes through an intersection because they are too busy texting on their phone, an intersection accident could take place immediately, turning lives upside-down.
