Multi-vehicle accidents can be difficult to sort out. In the space of a few seconds, several vehicles can collide for very different reasons, and determining liability may require a significant post-accident investigation. A recent multi-vehicle accident on Highway in Monroe demonstrates the difficulty of establishing causation and liability.
North Carolina has many winding and hilly roads that can be very scenic but also very dangerous. Many driveways and smaller roads enter these highways without any traffic signals or other warning. People who live in the vicinity of dangerous spots, such as blind curves or steep hills, are often familiar with the hazards, but people who rarely travel these routes are not. A recent head-on collision near Gastonia demonstrates the kinds of cataclysmic automobile accidents that result from such roads.
