Man dies when recliner falls from truck in North Carolina

A man died earlier this month when a recliner fell from a truck on US 421 in North Carolina. The accident happened in the northbound lanes of 421 around 10:30 in the morning and involved three vehicles.

According to state troopers, a black truck was towing a trailer when a recliner on the trailer fell off it and landed on the highway. The driver of a red truck noticed the recliner fall off the trailer and stopped his vehicle to avoid hitting it. The red truck was rear-ended by a van before skidding off the road and overturning.

The driver of the van that left the roadway was killed as a result of the accident. A second vehicle hit the stopped red truck after the van hit it. The woman driving the second striking vehicle, and her two children, were transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. The woman suffered several broken bones and fractures. The children were treated for minor injuries.

Two occupants in the red truck were treated for minor injuries. According to the state troopers, the driver of the truck who lost the recliner returned to the scene to get the chair but fled once all the accidents happened.

Police are still searching for the driver of the truck that lost the recliner. He or she could be facing charges of failure to secure load, a misdemeanor, among other charges.

Suffering injuries in a car accident can be very stressful. Speaking with an experienced car accident attorney in Wilson, North Carolina, can ease some of the stress that comes from an accident.
