Speeding has been named as the cause of many devastating accidents on country roads in North Carolina. Three people narrowly escaped death in a horrific accident on a recent Sunday afternoon. The Highway Patrol reported that the car crash occurred on a country road in Chatham County.
The accident report states that a driver and his wife, ages 67 and 63 respectively, were trapped in their car after an SUV smashed head-on into their sedan. Officers allege that the SUV driver traveled on the wrong side of the road before the collision. A witness claims that speeding contributed to this accident.
