And you should not be allowed to comment since you don't know how to spell.-Its R-O-A-D. This man is a human being. Like all human beings he made a mistake. He caused an accident. Key word: accident. He did not intend to do this. Why don't you try being in his shoes for a minute? He needs our thoughts and prayers just as much as this family needs them now.

James Chriscoe is one of the best people you could ever meet. He is one of those guys who would do just about anything for you and never ask for anything in return. He is a respected member of the community, great friend, and the best county maintanince director Randolph County ever had. An accident can happen to anyone, even to someone with a good driving record like James CHRISCOE!!!!!

I hope the people involved are okay. I disagree with the Highway Patrol saying that they don't think the accidents are related to the construction. I was almost hit when someone pulled out to pass an 18-wheeler, right past the barrier on a double line, a couple weeks ago. They REALLY need to drop the speed in that area while the construction is going on... it does NOT need to be 45 and 55!
I drive that road every day to work - 55 is too fast for the construction area.

I am praying for all involved.

Just face it,people here in NC can't drive.North Carolina is the 11th worst state in the country for automobile accidents.There's to many distractions anymore.Hope everyone involved is okay..and people get off you cell phones while driving.
People everywhere crash. NC is also the 11th largest state in the US, so figuring that I guess it's all equal!
Stop Judging

You all need to stop judging. Accidents do happen and not to say that either party was doing anything wrong. It is sad and my prayers go out to all involved, but we all need to step back and think,if it was one of our family members, what would we do in this situation. There will be an investigation I'm sure, but let the state police and the county do that. Who are we to judge!!!!????

"The highway patrol said there have been five accidents in that area in the past month, but they don't believe the wrecks are related to a nearby construction zone."

Are you Sh*ting me? 5 wrecks in the last month, a couple was head on collisions, but nahhhh the barrier wall right there don't have no effect on some drivers. Jesus NC's police force is STUPID. I'm moving back to Florida. Who wants to come with?=D

we live in this area. Everyone is looking at the road construction off the road. There have never been this many accidents in that area in such a short period of time. Yes, we definately believe that the accidents are related to the construction zone.

You are right Norman. It is hard to keep from looking at the change because the work is being done so quick and that is a tricky spot with the barrier right on the shoulder. I hate driving on 311. The speed limit is 45 and 55 and I drive a little over that and people ride on your rear thinking it is a super highway. I hope the HP patrol stays in that area to slow people down.
