Criminal Lawyers in Greensboro North Carolina

An NC Highway Patrol trooper died during a traffic stop just before 9 PM on Monday. Our criminal lawyers in Greensboro North Carolina are made aware of and represent clients in tragedies on a frequent basis. This latest situation though involves two brothers who are both highway patrolmen.

It all started with a car accident in North Carolina. The first trooper was responding to the crash. He detained the driver and was charging him criminally as he awaited backup. His brother, who is also a highway patrolman was driving to assist his brother. Upon arriving at the scene the brother lost control of his car and crashed into his brother and the person who was under arrest.

Our criminal defense lawyer in Greensboro NC was advised that the brother was rushed to the hospital where sadly, he later died from his personal injuries. The trooper who hit him was not only his brother, but a 15-year-veteran of the NC Highway Patrol. The man who was in custody and charged criminally, also sadly, was killed as a result of this accident.

At Garrett, Walker, Aycoth & Olson, Attorneys at Law, our thoughts and prayers go out to the highway patrolman who survived the crash, his family and the family of the other man who died in this horrific car accident. Never take life for granted, because you just don’t know what could happen. Stay safe and have a wonderful day.
