Three people sustained “life threatening injuries” after the car they were in hit a curb, and flipped the vehicle over early Wednesday morning, around 2:30 a.m.
According to the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department, three people were in the car that was speeding down Tuckaseegee Road, when the driver lost control of the vehicle when he bumped a curb, flipping the vehicle over and causing serious injuries to the passengers and driver.
The CMPD closed the road for investigation purposes, but re-opened Tuckaseegee Rd. around 7:00 a.m. It has not been finalized, however alcohol is believed to have been a contributing factor to the accident.
Both passengers and the driver were ultimately taken to Carolinas Medical Center, the Main location, where there have been reports of possible ” life threatening injuries” to the victims.
Sadly, there was an industrial accident that took the life of one man, and injured a second at Parker Hannifin last Tuesday.
The accident occurred in the Southwest region of Mecklenburg County at 9225 Forsyth Park Drive, off Westinghouse Boulevard. Paramedics were called to the scene and arrived around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
The investigation revealed that the two men involved in the accident were picking up cabinets from Parker Hannifin, when suddenly, the materials feel atop them and engulfed their bodies.
The name of the man who lost his life has not yet been released, but we have been informed that he was a private contractor who drove trucks for Landstar. Unfortunately, the weight of the cabinets was too much for the gentleman, and he was pronounced dead on scene when the Paramedics arrived.
However, the other injured man was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Pineville, and is expected to be released without “life threatening” injuries.
There is currently some discrepancy as to who has jurisdiction over this accident. Particularly, the Department of Labor is checking to see if they are entitled to obtain jurisdiction over the wrongful death suit.
