According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, a 6-year-old child who suffered fatal personal injuries in a crash on Interstate 95 in Dunn was not properly restrained when the SUV she was a passenger in collided with a tractor-trailer on Christmas Day.


On December 25, the tractor-trailer was northbound on I-95 when the SUV attempted to pass it, according to troopers. The SUV’s driver lost control, and the vehicle ran off the road, struck a guard rail, overcorrected, and struck the tractor-trailer before overturning and ending up on its roof.


Troopers identified the 6-year-old girl as Pennsylvania resident Taryn Greise. Troopers say she was not restrained in a child’s car seat or wearing a seat belt.


The SUV’s driver, 34-year-old Brandon John Greise Sr., three other adults, and two other children received transport to Betsy Johnson Regional Hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.


The driver of the tractor-trailer was uninjured.

Hi, I am the older sister of the child that died in the car accident. I would like to say that my dad was not driving wrecklessly and my sister and I were both unrestrained because we were asleep in the back seat. Everyone was fine except for some cuts and bruises. My sisters death was a tragic loss and she will be missed.My 18 month old brother died 8 years ago in a house fire, and people tried to blame that on my dad i think that it is wrong that they are trying to press charges on my dad.

My husband and I were travelling North on Interstate 95 and this Suv involved was travelling at hight speeds in hazardous conditions due to heavy rain. The driver was very close to us in the left lane, and we moved to the right lane to get out of his way. He then unsuccessfully tried to pass the tractor-trailer, resulting in the accident. We witnessed the entire accident and saw the child thrown out of the vehicle. I have never seen such a terrible accident like this that could have been avoided. Personally, I have been very upset of witnessing this child's death. I would like to know how the other passengers are doing. I do understand that under the privacy laws that you may not be able to provide me any information, but possibly could tell me where to receive an update. Thank you and God be with this family.

Brandon and Misty are the best parents and children could ever ask for. To the public, please pray for them and let their family alone. They are going thru hell and you would not want to walk even 1 minute in their shoes. LET THEM ALONE!!!!!
