A Greensboro man is being charged with a DWI after he was responsible for a fatal accident in Davidson County.
The police reports state that the accident occurred early in the morning, right around 5:00 a.m. of NC Highway 109.
Accordingly, the defendant drove his vehicle left of the center lane, hitting another driver head-on. Almost immediately after the initial crash, another vehicle travelling down the highway slammed his car into the other two vehicles, totaling all three of the cars.
Thus, what was initially a two car collision due to a drunken driver, resulted in injury and accident to all three vehicles.
Sadly, the man who was hit head-on, during the first crashed, was fatally wounded and by the time the medics arrives, he was pronounced dead on the scene.
The other victim vehicle that was involved in the accident had only one passenger in his vehicle, and he was also taken to the hospital in critical condition. The man who caused the accident however, was taken to the hospital with only minor injuries.
The accident is still being investigated and other charges may still be pending, but what we do know is that the contributor to the first accident is being charged with at least a DWI.
