A 27-year-old woman lost control of her car and was killed in a crash that occurred Friday morning in north Charlotte. The crash took place at approximately 7 a.m. at the intersection of East Sugar Creek Road and North Tryon Street.
The woman was driving a 2002 Toyota Highlander when she hit a curb, went up on the sidewalk and flipped several times before coming to a stop in a church yard. When her car began to flip across the intersection, the car hit three other vehicles.
Three other people suffered minor injuries during the wreck. The woman driver was pronounced dead on the scene at 7:21 a.m.
Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.
90 percent of licensed drivers speed at some point and a shocking 70 percent of licensed drivers admit to committing the offense regularly. As the speed of a vehicle increases, the risk of an accident and the force that could potentially be experienced by the human body in a collision increase exponentially. Traffic engineers and local governments generally use careful calculations and research in determining maximum speeds allowable for safe travel. It’s important to obey the speed limit and practice safe driving techniques for the safety of all travelers on our nation’s highways.
