About North Carolina Highway 55
Starting at its northern terminus at US 501 Business near I-85, NC 55 travels through North Carolina Central University and the rest of Durham. As it exits the city, it becomes a four-lane highway that passes through the Research Triangle Park before entering Cary and then Apex. It narrows again after its junction with US 64, and in Holly Springs, divides into business and bypass routes. After that, it continues to run southeast to east and then ends at Pamlico Sound.
North Carolina Highway 55 Accidents
Towns such as Apex have been responding to numerous vehicle accidents on NC 55. Examples of more recent incidents on this highway include a car crash fuel spill, an injurious rollover accident, and a fatal DWI crash. Aside from deaths, injuries sustained in such accidents could be life-altering, such as brain or spinal cord damage, severe concussions, and serious fractures that result in permanent suffering.
Drunk driving is a top cause of motor vehicle accidents, but there are more factors to be considered, especially if the accident occurred on a major highway such as NC 55. Accidents could result from factors like speeding, distracted driving, flawed road design, and poor road maintenance. Often, in these cases, a certain party may be found negligent and the victims or their loved ones may be compensated.
