Another Raleigh Car Crash Caused by a Wrong-Way Driver
A car crash on Capital Blvd in Raleigh happened in late July when a southbound vehicle started driving in the northbound lanes. The wrong-way driver ran off the road and hit a ditch.
This recent Raleigh wrong-way car crash fortunately did not cause any injuries or deaths like the series of other wrong-way crashes happening around the Triangle during the past few months. Just the weekend before the Capital Blvd crash, another wrong-way car accident happened on I-40 near the exit to Jones Sausage Road. It caused injuries and two deaths, including the death of Enloe High School student Job Hernandez. Hernandez, 17, was a passenger in a car that his 21-year-old brother was driving. The wrong-way driver, Carolina Linares, died on impact.
In a separate wrong-way crash, driver, 23-year-old Sarah Carden who was traveling the opposite direction on I-440 just a few months before, caused another vehicle to crash that injured one passenger and killed another.
Wrong-way driving is usually typical on highway ramps. What is causing the surge in wrong-way driving? In some of the cases, like Carden’s, the drivers were intoxicated. Investigations are still being made and trials are being scheduled for most of the wrong-way crashes. The families of the victims who have lost their lives are eligible for wrongful death benefits, and the surviving victims who were injured are entitled to compensation for their injuries, including coverage of medical treatments, lost wages and payments for permanent impairments.
