Drunk driver accused in crash that killed two Charlotte teens

A University of North Carolina student and her boyfriend were on their way to their home in Charlotte after visiting their families in the Wilmington area. The pair of 18-year-olds were going west on U.S. 74 in a Ford Focus on the night of the Super Bowl.

Two North Carolina girls killed in high-speed crash

If you drive northeast of Charlotte for a little less than three hours, you arrive in Person County. The rural area is a quieter, sadder place than it was two years ago. Two little Person County girls were killed in a car crash in June 2015 while they were on vacation with their family in Myrtle Beach.

North Carolina man sentenced in bicycle accident hit-and-run

A 22-year-old North Carolina man was bicycling home from work late one November night last year. The front and rear of his bicycle were equipped with blinking red lights, as required by law, and he wore a helmet. Unfortunately, his precautions were not enough to save him from a careless, speeding SUV driver who struck him from behind with such force that the bicyclist was knocked out of his shoes, newspaper reports said.

Prescription opioid use driving car accident rates higher

Law enforcement officials in Charlotte and across the state of North Carolina have repeatedly said that like much of the nation, we are in the midst of an opioid epidemic.

North Carolina man killed in crash triggered by fallen recliner

It is sometimes said of tragedies that the victim was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Car vaults into air in highway crash northeast of Charlotte

If you have driven northeast of Charlotte on Highway 601 North in Cabarrus County, you likely passed some of the scenery you can see whizzing by in a video that has gone viral in social media. The 3 and a half minute video shows a driver careening from side to side on the highway, sometimes directly into the path of oncoming traffic, before the vehicle veers off the road, hits a bump and vaults into the air before smashing headlong into a tree.

Slow down: work ahead on North Carolina streets and highways

It's an annual tradition: the streets and highways leading in and out of Charlotte slow down as the summer construction season grinds on. Sometimes sections of I-85, I-77 and I-277 seem like the slowest routes to take because of construction work zones.

Speed, drunkenness, mayhem on a North Carolina morning

If you take Interstate 85 northeast of Charlotte, you will soon come to Salisbury. A recent motor vehicle crash there combined several elements common in serious accidents: an allegedly drunk driver, high speeds and poor judgment. The result was a three-car crash that caused injuries to motorists.
