One Killed in Tragic Crash at Fort Bragg, North Carolina (NC)

November 15, 2020

FORT BRAGG, NC- writes that a collision left one soldier dead this week at Fort Bragg.*

The incident occurred on the military base. The victim was reportedly a 35-year-old woman from Kissimmee, Florida. The soldier worked with the psychological operations regiment and enlisted in the army in 2004. After attending training in Fort Jackson, South Carolina, she was assigned to work with Fort Bragg. During her time with the military, the victim served tours in Lithuania, the Philippines, Kuwait, Qatar, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The report did not provide details regarding the cause of the collision.

North Carolina has a poor record when it comes to vehicle collisions. Part of the issue appears to be speeding, distracted driving, and failure to yield. Of course, the same issues cause car crashes throughout The United States. Most car crashes or the results of human errors. 

According to, the top causes of motor vehicle accidents are as follows:

  • Distracted Driving is now one of the main causes of fatal crashes and is often the result of motorists texting behind the wheel or otherwise focusing on their smartphones. 
  • Drunk Driving - Driving under the influence leads to many of the most severe collisions that take place in America. 
  • Speeding - Speeding is reportedly the number two most likely cause of collisions. 
  • Aggressive Driving can include speeding but also changing lanes too quickly, other dangerous maneuvers. 
  • Failure to Obey Traffic Devices -  Unfortunately, drivers frequently fail to abide by traffic signals and running through red lights and other traffic control devices often cause severe collisions. 
  • Weather Conditions - Many collisions are also the result of bad weather conditions. Driving during bad weather, such as rain, and at night, lead to visibility issues that can create serious risks on the road. It is also dangerous to follow behind another vehicle too closely. 
  • Tailgating often leads to a crash is because it does not provide enough room or time for a driver to slow down in the event of an emergency. It is important that drivers use caution whenever they are on the road, as driving is one of the most dangerous things people do on a regular basis.
