Just north of Dunn, in the town of Garney, a community still mourns the loss of an 18-year-old teen who lost his life a little over a week ago in a deadly roll-over accident that also injured two other teens. It's a tragedy no one in the town will soon forget.
Most North Carolina drivers need little reminding when it comes to the dangers of drunk driving, yet there appears to be those few out there who need a little more reminding than others. Hopefully for one High Point man, the fact that his negligence ended in the loss of life may be the reminder he needs to never be drunk and get behind the wheel of a vehicle ever again.
We hear about them just about every night on the evening news: deadly car accidents caused when another driver negligently runs through a red light, colliding with another vehicle in the process. And although we hear about them on a frequent basis, the devastating impact it has on a community is never lessoned.
