Statesville NC Motorcyclist Nicholas Jones Seriously Injured in Accident

A motorcyclist named Nicholas Jones was seriously injured on Sunday afternoon in an accident on Buffalo Shoals Road in Statesville, North Carolina.  The accident happened when a Nissan Altima was turning left from Buffalo Shoals Road onto Poppy Lane and apparently crossed the path of Mr. Jones on his motorcycle.

NC State Highway Patrol officers apparently indicate that the driver of the Nissan was not at fault because there is a slight dip in the road which made it difficult to see Mr. Jones as he approached on his motorcycle.  There is also the suggestion that Mr. Jones was traveling at a high rate of speed.  However, if there is a dip in the road, the turning vehicle should be even more concerned about on-coming vehicles such as Mr. Jones’ motorcycle before turning and the Nissan may have had the last clear chance to avoid this wreck.

Shaun Murdock Killed in Wilmington NC Motorcycle Accident

A gentleman named Shaun Murdock was tragically killed Tuesday morning in a Wilmington, North Carolina motorcycle accident.  The accident happened when a man driving a 2013 Toyota fled police and then ran a red light hitting Mr. Murdock.

The accident happened near the intersection of South College Road and Peachtree Avenue.  North Carolina State Troopers originally attempted to stop the the driver of the Toyota in Brunswick County which prompted a chase which led into New Hanover County.  After the accident with Mr. Murdock, the driver of the Toyota continued to flee but was ultimately arrested near Winter Park Elementary school.  He has been charged with numerous crimes including speeding, felony hit and run, and misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.

The facts of the serious accident are very disturbing.  The driver of the Toyota has violated many laws of North Carolina and faces serious criminal charges as a result.  However, it is also not clear why the chase of the Toyota continued to such an extent that the Toyota crossed in a busy section of Wilmington.  Many police departments now have strict guidelines on when a vehicle chase should continue due to the possibility of accidents such as what happened in this case.
