On Sunday, May 10, a minivan being driven by a 21-year-old male motorist flipped over in a Winston-Salem accident. According to the Winston-Salem Police Department, the crash occurred at approximately 1:40 a.m., in the 1900 block of Sprague Street.

Vehicle Leaves the Roadway

Police say that the 2006 Dodge mini-van was westbound just before the crash. The vehicle veered to the right, running completely off of the road and into a utility pole. Ultimately, it came to rest on its side, according to wxii news.

A 35-year-old man from Winston-Salem was sitting in the right rear part of the minivan when the accident occurred. Emergency personnel transported him to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. However, he passed away the following day. The driver and two additional passengers received treatment for minor injuries.

Alcohol Involvement Alleged

Police also stated that the preliminary investigation suggested that it is possible that alcohol was a factor in the accident. Although the investigation into this particular crash is ongoing, North Carolina state law does provide a means of redress in the courts in certain cases when negligent conduct, including impaired driving, results in injury or death.

It is possible for victims to seek compensation for unpaid medical bills, pain-and-suffering and lost wages. When there is a loss of life, it is possible for family survivors to also seek compensation for loss of companionship and burial expenses.
