It’s not unusual to hear about car accidents during morning traffic in Chapel Hill. But, when someone dies in the crash, it can be heartbreaking. Residents of Chapel Hill and North Carolina felt this yesterday morning when the news was announced that a Chapel Hill 2-vehicle crash kills 1.
The crash took place on Fordham Boulevard in Chappel Hill. It happened right in front of the Auto Zone near the intersection of Old Durham Road and Sage Road at about 7:30 a.m.
The crash involved 2 vehicles. One of the drivers was pronounced dead at the scene. The passengers in the other car were treated for minor injuries at the crash. They didn’t need to go to the hospital.
There is still no information on what caused the crash or if any other cars were involved. The road was shut down from about 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. from Eastowne Drive to Erwin Road.
Authorities haven’t released the name of the deceased. Nor have they provided any information on the people in the other car. Although no charges have been filed yet, there has not been a confirmation that this won’t happen. The police need to complete their investigation before they make any decisions about criminal charges.
Fordham Boulevard is a very popular road in Chapel Hill, especially during the morning rush hour. Drivers are lucky that no other cars were involved in the incident. And, the driver and passengers in the second car are lucky that they walked away with minor bumps and bruises.
