Wrong-way driving and their impact on North Carolina motorists

While relatively infrequent, wrong-way crashes are more likely to lead to serious injuries and fatalities when compared to other types of crashes. This is because such collisions tend to be head-on in nature. Studies by state transportation departments have shown that the likelihood of fatalities in a head on crash is 12 times greater in Virginia compared to other motor vehicle accidents and 27 times greater in California.

Increased mining inspections after worker fatalities

North Carolina mining companies may be affected by a series of fatalities that occurred in the industry recently. A fatal injury to an 18-year-old quarry worker from Virginia was one of three mining-related deaths throughout the nation on Aug. 3. At least five deaths have occurred in the last month in the industry, adding to the concern over these latest incidents. Officials with the Mine Safety and Health Administration have expressed major concerns about the number of deaths, noting that there are plans to increase education at work locations.
