Accident Lawyers Discuss Car Hitting Winston-Salem Home

Winston-Salem police say that a man died in his home after a vehicle crashed into it very early in the morning on Sunday, July 12. Two other residents were not at home when the crash happened.

Accident Details

According to a report from Fox 8 News, investigators say that a Mitsubishi automobile was westbound on Oak Summit Road when it crossed into the oncoming lane after crossing the yellow line. The vehicle swerved off the road and into the side of a residence in the 300 block of Oak Summit Road near Highway 8.

One Killed, One Injured

A 56-year-old man inside the home suffered severe injuries. At approximately 2:15 a.m., the man died at the scene. Emergency personnel took the 37-year-old male motorist to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

Severe Structural Damage

City inspectors and members of the Winston-Salem Fire Department responded to the scene. Authorities report severe structural damage to the home, and the investigation continues. There was no immediate report regarding possible charges following the fatal accident.

Although investigators have more work to do in this case, survivors of those killed due to negligent conduct do have recourse in the state’s civil court system. It is often possible to pursue damages for loss of companionship, pain-and-suffering and burial expenses. When injuries occur due to negligent conduct, it is possible for victims to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain-and-suffering and possible lost wages.
