Authorities have provided details of a two-vehicle crash that occurred in Hoke County at approximately noon on Monday, August, 17. A spokesman for the North Carolina Highway Patrol reported that the wreck happened on N.C. 211 between Raeford and Aberdeen.

Vehicles Collide Head-on

A vehicle operated by a 31-year-old man from Pinehurst crossed the centerline and crashed head-on into an oncoming vehicle, according to the Fayetteville Observer.

The Pinehurst man was not injured. In the other vehicle, a 69-year-old female passenger died at the scene. Emergency personnel transported an 84-year-old man to the Cape Fear Regional Medical Center where he later died. Emergency personnel also took a 65-year-old man to FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital where he later died. A third passenger, a 55-year-old woman from Lumberton, is in stable condition at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital, according to the state patrol spokesperson.

Allegedly Impaired Driver Arrested

Troopers took the Pinehurst man into custody on suspicion of impaired driving. He was subsequently charged with reckless driving, driving left of the centerline and impaired driving. He is being held in the Hoke County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail. The trooper also stated that the man has a history of alcohol and drug offenses.

Although the investigation into this fatal wreck is ongoing, survivors of those killed due to negligent conduct on the state’s roadways do have recourse in the civil court system. It is often possible to seek compensation for loss of companionship, pain and suffering, and burial expenses.
