North Carolina Student Struck and Killed by Car Driven by Teacher
An 18-year-old was struck by a car in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina on Wednesday, December 8, as he was walking to school. He died the next day. The car was reportedly driven by a teacher at the teen's school.
Parents and others believe this was an accident that was going to happen sooner or later because there is no crosswalk where the victim and others cross to get to the school, which is right across the street. Students say the traffic in that area is "crazy." According to both parents and students, there is a small "pedestrian crossing" sign in front of the school, but it is clearly not enough. A proper crosswalk is a quarter of a mile away from the school.
The teacher who hit the student has not been charged. It may be that this is a combination of traffic speed in an area where there is no decent crossing sign, and directly across the street from a place where scores of teens will be.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced personal injury attorney in your area today.
