    Default Deuce crash in Winston-Salem, NC, 11/2017

    Well folks I hope this isn't one of ours.....

    A Ford Focus failed to yield the right of way on Bolton St in Winston-Salem Friday night and turned left in front of an M44 series truck with a winch and got broadsided. The Focus driver is in the hospital with life threatening injuries which is no surprise considering how deep the front bumper and winch are in the Focus. If there had been a passenger front seat rider in that car they'd be dead for sure.

    The deuce driver, Samuel Shamel, age 24 was charged with no registration, no inspection, no insurance and with failure to properly restrain a child.

    Deuce headlights not burning either at night. I'll never understand why people think they can get away with "driving dirty" just because they are behind the wheel of a former military vehicle.

    (2nd of) Two very sad posts (to have) to respond to today...This one like the last is the wrong sort of attention historic military vehicle enthusiasts collectors and show participants need.
    I hope the driver of the small car get's to be back to normal as soon as possible.

    Man dies after crash involving car, military-style cargo truck in Winston-Salem

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. The man injured in a crash involving a military-style cargo truck and a car last week in Winston-Salem has died, according to a press release.
    Daniel Mark Beyerlein, 30, died on Nov. 7 from injuries sustained the crash. He had been hospitalized since last Friday.
    Investigators said Beyerlein was driving a Ford Focus north on Bolton Street near the on and off ramp to Silas Creek Parkway shortly before 7:30 p.m.
    Police said he then tried to turn left onto the on-ramp to southbound Silas Creek Parkway and into the path of the truck.
    Beyerlein did not have a protected green left turn light at the time and the vehicles collided in the southbound lane of Bolton Street, according to police.
    Samuel Howard Palmer Shamel, 24, of Winston-Salem, was the driver of the privately-owned military-style cargo truck, according to police.
    Shamel and his passenger were not injured but Shamel faces charges of failure to register his motor vehicle with the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, not having the motor vehicle inspected, failure to have the motor vehicle insured and failure to properly restrain a child.
    --------------------

    FAILURE to Register;
    NOT inspected;
    FAILURE to insure;
    FAILURE to restrain child ! ! !

    There ARE CONSEQUENCES for poor judgement, regardless of the other (deceased) driver's failure to yield the right-of-way.

    Is this MV owner an SS Member???

    Again, we pray.

    I'm betting the family will sue for 'wrongful death', saying that the vehicle shouldn't have been on the road...

    I had a close call couple nights ago I had my wife's nice with me, going out to recover her car out of the ditch. Compliments of daylite savings time the sun sets around 6 up here now. This particular night it was raining heavy, blowing and pitch black out. I made a left turn on to a road had blinding lights from another car turning to my niece shouted stop some ones in the road. I stopped and 2 guys dressed in black, walked right in to the front of my truck. had it not been for some one riding tc with me you would have been reading headlines on me to, I would bet I'd have never felt them in the lmtv.

    I'd like to agree....but under the circumstances I guess the deceased was at fault for the accident whether the Deuce was "legal" or not.

    BUT!!!

    No tag, no insurance, WTH was that guy thinking!! He made a tragic mistake and I'm sure he will pay dearly for it in more ways than just legal woes. So will his family.

    I feel for all involved.

    Based on what I see happening daily, I would say the driver of the Deuce has big problems. Why anyone takes any vehicle on the road without the proper paperwork is beyond me. Hope it works out for all involved.

    I'm so glad the deuce was not the cause of the accident, but I agree, the owner is going to have some serious legal woes... Regardless of the fact the deuce was not at fault, he will almost certainly be sued and held accountable due to the fact the deuce was not registered or insured and thus should not have been there to hit the car when it's driver mis-judged his turn.
