Tragic Death of Onslow County Man Ruled as an Accident
JACKSONVILLE, NC – According to an online news report at wnct.com, no one will be facing charges in connection with the accidental death of a man who was struck by an automobile over this past weekend.*
The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office provides that a male, aged 32, from Midway Park, North Carolina, died at the scene of an accident after he was struck by a vehicle that caused him to hit his head on the roadway.
It appears from the preliminary investigation of the accident that the 32-year-old was involved in an argument with his roommate, a 22-year-old male. The 22-year-old got into his vehicle to leave the scene of the argument in order to diffuse it. This occurred in the late evening hours. As the 22-year-old drove away, the 32-year-old then jumped onto the 22-year-old’s vehicle where he then fell off and struck his head on the pavement.
The 22-year-old stopped and attempted to render aid to the 32-year-old. He called 911 to request medical attention for his roommate. Witnesses also attempted to assist the injured victim however, their efforts were unsuccessful. The 32-year-old perished as a result of the extent of his injuries.
The District Attorney’s Office for Onslow County as well as the Sheriff’s Office examined the incident and determined that the death of the 32-year-old was an accident. As a result, the driver will not face charges. There are no further details on the accident at this time.
