On Tuesday, two people were killed in a crash involving a dump truck in McDowell County. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the incident happened on NC-226. Very few details about this fatal crash have been released, but we do know that one person was airlifted to Mission Trauma Center for treatment, and two others were pronounced dead on the scene. Initial reports indicate that a dump truck was headed southbound downhill on 226, and that speed may have been a factor.
The truck overturned and struck another vehicle. The other vehicle, a Honda, was crushed and dragged under the dump truck. The truck driver and a 15-year-old girl were killed in the crash. This wreck is likely still under investigation with law enforcement authorities.
The team at Davis Law Group, P.A. sends their deepest condolences to the family members and friends of the two people who lost their lives in this crash.
