Unfortunately, this is not an unusual event. In North Carolina and the United States as a whole, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for persons of every age from 4 to 33. In North Carolina alone in a single year, 1,552 people were killed and 134,472 people were injured in 231,247 reported traffic accidents. Said another way, a traffic accident occurred every 2.3 minutes, one person was injured every 3.9 minutes, and one person was killed every 5.6 hours.
