North Carolina gas pedal crashes common amongst teens and elderly

There is no doubt that negligent or distracted drivers on our Fayetteville roads have a higher risk of being injured or injuring others in a motor vehicle accident. One major distraction is the use of electronics and other hand-held devices such as cell phones.

Cancer misdiagnosis: North Carolina woman cautions other patients

When Fayetteville residents experience abnormal symptoms that could indicate that there is something seriously wrong with their health, they turn to their physicians and other medical experts for help.

Ruling upheld in North Carolina teen's wrongful death from Taser

The Taser is a very common tool used by law enforcement. The tool administers an electric shock which helps subdue suspects who resist arrests or threaten officers during an arrest.

During a six-month period, researchers from the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center gathered more than 24,000 video clips of teen drivers from 50 different families in our state.

Any truck accident on our Fayetteville roads could result in catastrophic injuries. Passengers in cars, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians do not have much to protect them if they are ever involved in an accident with a large commercial vehicle or tractor-trailer. The damage from a truck accident could be even more severe if the truck is transporting dangerous chemicals or heavy equipment.
