Three kids and one adult were sent to the hospital following a crash on MLK Parkway in Wilmington, NC on January 26, 2011 around 7:30 in the morning.
Authorities say a vehicle collided with another car on the exit ramp and pushed it across a median where it was then hit by an oncoming semi-truck. It sounds like the car that caused the automobile accident was either following too close or failed to reduce speed to avoid the car crash.
The three children and adult in the impacted vehicle were transported to an area hospital, but their conditions are currently unreleased. Hopefully, they were all wearing their safety belts as required by law in North Carolina. Children under the age of 16 are covered by the North Carolina Child Passenger Safety Law, G.S. 20-137.1.
