A two-vehicle accident at an intersection in Rowan County led to the arrest of one motorist. State troopers say that the crash occurred at Old Beatty Ford Road and Rockwell Road at about 3:30 p.m. on Friday, May 29.

Alleged Failure to Stop

A male motorist driving a 2015 Ford Mustang GT allegedly ran through a stop sign, and a Ford Explorer broadsided the car on the passenger side. A 21-year-old female passenger in the car died in the crash. The driver of the Explorer required transport to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Charges Filed, Bond Set

There was no report of injuries to the driver of the Mustang. He is a student at UNC Charlotte who was reportedly taking his female passenger to her Rockwell home when the fatal wreck occurred. He faces charges of misdemeanor death by vehicle, and bond is $50,000, according to wbtv. He remained in the Rowan County Jail the night following the accident. The accused is reportedly a Kuwaiti national, so personnel with the Kuwaiti Embassy are reportedly involved in the matter.

Although this accident is the subject of an ongoing investigation, North Carolina state law does provide a car accident victim, or survivors of the victim, to seek redress in the state’s civil courts. When it is possible to reasonably assert that negligent conduct led to injury or death, it is possible to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain-and-suffering and other losses. When a death occurs, it is possible for survivors to also seek compensatory damages for loss of companionship and burial expenses.
