Pisgah Forest Fatal Wreck

Last week, a fatal chain-reaction crash occurred in Transylvania County. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened on Asheville Highway 280 in the Pisgah Forest area. Although very few details about how this crash happened have been released, we do know that a vehicle crossed over the center lane of the roadway and struck another automobile. The initial collision caused a chain reaction. At least two other vehicles were involved in the crash, and 80-year-old Robert James Giuduci was killed. 

Three other people were hospitalized for injuries, but there's no word on their current conditions. There's also no explanation for why the initial car crossed over the centerline. Could it have been a case of distracted driving? Did the driver have a medical emergency or a mechanical problem with the car?

Dangerous Roadways Around Asheville

Apparently, this isn't the first crash to happen on this particular stretch of roadway. Local residents report that they've seen multiple car accidents in this area over the past few years. One woman refuses to let her children play in the front yard due to the danger involved. It may be time for officials to take a closer look at roadway configuration or other factors that make this part of the road notoriously dangerous.

Distracted Driving in Asheville
It's also not uncommon for drivers to veer out of their lanes or cross centerlines when distractions are involved. Distracted driving puts everybody on the road at great risk. There is even research that suggests distracted drivers have slower reaction times than alcohol impaired drivers. Texting-while-driving isn't the only type of distracted driving either. Anything that takes the driver's attention away from the task at hand is considered a distraction.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash involving a distracted driver, contact a skilled personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Additional investigative efforts may be necessary to determine the cause of the crash. The team at Davis Law Group, P.A. sends their deepest condolences to the family members and friends of Robert James Giuduci and wishes speedy and full recoveries to all of the injured victims involved.
