Crash Between Semi and Car Injures One in Potters Hill, North Carolina

November 29, 2019

POTTERS HILL, NC- writes that a collision on NC 241 earlier this week resulted in one person ending up in the hospital. The accident occurred early in the morning before sunrise. According to responders, the victim was struck in the car, and it took about half an hour to remove the person from the damaged vehicle.*

The crash also resulted in a fuel spill. The Department of Transportation used sand to clean the fuel from the roadway. 

North Carolina saw certain types of accidents decline in 2017, and others increase according to a statewide report published by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). The report indicated that the total number of traffic-related fatalities dropped by a little over three percent, and the total number of persons injured in crashes also declined by almost two percent. Despite fewer deaths, the number of accidents rose.

Cyclist crashes saw a massive increase of 86.7 percent between 2016 and 2017. Pedestrian deaths went up, but only by one percent. The report lists distracted driving and drunk driving as two significant factors contributing to traffic deaths in the state.

Some of what the report showed matches the trends seen across the nation. Occupants in vehicles are dying less often, but pedestrian fatalities are remaining high and increasing each year slightly. While fatal crashes between bikes and cars are happening more often too, the massive spike in these crashes in North Carolina seems to be an outlier.

Making the roads safer will likely require multiple solutions, including law enforcement efforts, better infrastructure, driver education, and improving vehicle technology. The high number of vehicle-related fatalities is tragic and preventable.
