The hustle and bustle of Charlotte means that traffic is on the city’s roads at all times of day and night. The early morning hours have historically been among the most dangerous to be on the road in North Carolina and everywhere else. During these times, many accidents are caused by drowsy drivers and intoxicated drivers; however, police are still investigating the cause of an early morning crash in the Queen City that seriously injured one. 

Accident details 

Reports about the accident do not offer a lot of detail. Although the report does not specify if more than one vehicle was involved, it did refer to the crash as a collision. The crash reportedly happened on or about 2:30 a.m. on Monday, April 25 on the inner loop of I-485 near I-77.  

The vehicle was described only as an SUV that had sustained extensive damage. No word was given as to how many occupants were in the SUV. The report states that one person was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. Officers with the North Carolina Highway Patrol are still investigating. 

Legal recourse 

If this crash was caused by the negligent or reckless behavior of the driver, and a passenger in the vehicle suffered serious injuries as a result, the victim could elect to pursue a personal injury claim against the driver to pursue recovery of monetary damages. As is the right of all who suffer serious injuries or heartbreaking losses in accidents caused by negligence or wrongdoing, those adversely affected can work with an experienced personal injury attorney in North Carolina for help. A lawyer will always strongly advocate for his or her client in an attempt at helping him or her obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible.
