Charlotte NC Auto Accident Lawyer
While driving on the North end of Charlotte, a husband and wife slid off of a wet road in their SUV into a tree.
Other vehicles crashed behind them, causing 8 people injuries and claiming one woman.
One person taken to CMC had life-threatening injuries, two had potentially life-threatening injuries, and five others had non-life threatening injuries, according to Medic.
Rain may not be frozen like snow or ice, but that does not mean we should throw caution to the wind. Rain by itself can cause extremely slick roads and cause situations such as hydroplaning. The rule of thumb for driving on rain slick roads is to slowing down ten miles per hour below the posted speed limit and heightening awareness of the highway conditions.
Hydroplaning can occur at both slower speeds as well as higher speeds. In many ways, rain soaked roads are more dangerous than snow covered roads because the driver takes for the granted the ability to navigate at a speed that is consistent with driving in clear conditions.
