Adult, Child Killed in 18-Wheeler Overturn Accident on I-95 in Fayetteville, NC

Fayetteville, NC — June 9, 2022, an adult and a child were killed in a collision between a van and a semi-truck on Interstate 95 near Fayetteville.

According to reports the incident happened Thursday morning along I-95 between State Highways 87 and 24. Preliminary investigation suggests the Dodge van and the semi-truck were both headed north when the truck driver failed to control the big rig's speed. The driver the over-corrected course and hit the van. After the impact the semi-truck ran off the road and overturned.

The truck driver and a 3-year-old child in the truck suffered fatal injuries in the crash. The van's driver received non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a Cape Fear hospital.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Truck Accident on I-95 in Fayetteville

It's one thing to read that a truck crashed, but it's another entirely to get to the bottom of how that happened. If the driver lost control, why? Was he distracted by something? Did he fall asleep briefly? Could he have had some kind of incapacitating medical issue at the wheel? If so, what kind? Was the truck itself in good working order? What were weather, road, and traffic conditions like in the area at the time?

I don't ask questions like that to get lost in the weeds or point any fingers. It's just important to recognize all the possible variables and investigate them carefully--mostly to be sure all the crash's details are known, but also because every available fact is needed to get help for the people affected by this tragic incident. A man and a young child both lost their lives here, and that alone warrants every possible effort to learn how and why.

Unfortunately people who seek those answers have sometimes learned the hard way that no matter how clear things seem at first, it usually takes more than police or news reports to secure the help they need. That's why I often suggest the help of independent investigators with the time, tools, and training to look much closer than law enforcement typically does. With the evidence they find, folks whose lives are forever changed by these accidents are often able to get much-needed closer--and sometimes assistance with resuming their lives.
