North Carolina Woman Dies And Six Others Are Injured In Deadly SUV-Van Collision on South Carolina’s I-77

July 5, 2007, by Michael A. DeMayo

A North Carolina woman was killed on Tuesday when the 1995 Isuzu Trooper SUV she was riding in overturned after colliding with a 1999 Chevrolet van on South Carolina’s Interstate 77 in York County. Six other people were thrown from the sports utility vehicle. Three of these passengers were young children, ages 5,4, and 3.

The woman who died, 53-year-old Alice Mouzone, had been riding in the front passenger seat at the time of the motor vehicle accident. She was the only one who was not thrown from the SUV because she was the only person in the motor vehicle who had been wearing a seatbelt. They were headed to a 4th of July celebration when the crash occurred.

The six injured passengers were taken to a local hospital. Two of them had to airlifted from the accident scene. All seven people in the SUV were from Thomasville, North Carolina and from the same family.

The passenger and driver of the Chevrolet van were both wearing seatbelts and were not injured in the deadly motor vehicle crash.

The cause of the motor vehicle accident is under investigation.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident caused by another party’s negligence, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to cover your medical and recovery costs.

Medical care for serious injuries can be expensive and ongoing, which is why you need to retain the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer that knows how to handle personal injury claims.

Potential liable parties can include a negligent driver, a manufacturer of a motor vehicle (if the car, truck, or vehicle in question was defective or malfunctioned), and possibly even the local or state government if, for instance, a faulty traffic light was the cause of an injury or wrongful death accident.

SUV rollovers are not uncommon, especially because the way this kind of vehicle is designed puts it at a greater risk for a rollover accident. A lawsuit can be filed against the manufacturer of an SUV if a person is injured or killed because of the vehicle’s design.
