Five were injured in a two-car crash that happened in northeast Charlottte Thursday morning after one car flipped multiple times.

The crash happened at approximately 11 a.m. at the intersection of W.T. Harris Boulevard and E. McCullough Drive.

According to authorities, a 62-year-old driver was pulling out of the public library driveway and was unable to see the second car.

The driver of the second vehicle attempted to swerve to avoid the crash and as a result, flipped several times coming to a rest at the median.

The second car had four people in it including the driver and her three children—agens 4, 3, and 2.  They were all transported to Carolinas Medical Center.  The driver was charged with Driving with a Revoked License and a Child Seat Violation since the car’s seatbelts were being used to secure the children, rather than child restraint seats.

The passenger of the 62-year-old driver’s car was transported to CMC-University for neck pain.


With motor vehicle travel being the most common means of transportation in the U.S., it’s not surprising that motor vehicle crashes were the cause of 90 deaths per day in 2010.  In fact, an alarming 32,885 people were killed in the estimated 5,419,000 police reported motor-vehicle crashes that occurred that year.  There are precautions you can take, however, to help protect yourself and your family and to also help decrease the number of deaths and injuries on our nation’s highways.  Firstly, never drink and drive.  It’s always safer to call a cab or a friend.  Also, obey posted speed limits.  The faster you drive, the more you increase your risk of being involved in a crash.  Try to avoid distractions like eating, texting or fiddling with electronic devices.  Stay alert and never drive while you are feeling fatigued or drowsy.  Lastly, always be sure that you and all of your passengers are wearing a seat belt or are properly restrained before you begin your drive.
