North Carolina Woman Killed in Collision

head on crashA 32-year-old woman was driving home on a road in Belmont, N.C., last month when a jeep struck her car head-on, taking her life, The Gaston Gazette reported.

The newspaper noted that her three daughters were in the car at the time and were later treated for injuries.

According to FOX8, two of the girls were treated at the CaroMount Regional Medical Center and the third girl was flown to the Levine Children’s Hospital and was reportedly in critical condition.

The 17-year-old teenager who was driving the jeep said that he fell asleep before the crash and crossed the center line of the road, WCNC.com wrote in coverage of the accident.

Statistics from the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) show that teens were involved in 43,205 crashes in 2013. NCDOT data also show that 63 of those crashes involved fatalities.

Last year, McClatchy DC reported that some states had installed steel cable median barriers on highways to prevent fatal accidents.

The news publication also said that these barriers could stop vehicles from crossing the median and crashing into cars traveling in the opposite direction.
