North Carolina Appellate Court Upholds Summary Judgment for Defendant in Pedestrian Accident Case involving Contributory Negligence Defense

The North Carolina Court of Appeal discussed a pedestrian accident in a recent appellate opinion. In the case, the plaintiff left her apartment and began walking to a local shopping center in Goldsboro. The defendant was driving in the northbound lane on her way home from work at roughly 35 miles per hour. The lane on which the defendant was traveling was a five-lane road featuring two lanes on either side, a turn lane, and a paved median. The plaintiff crossed the two southbound lanes of this road and stood on the paved median. There was a vehicle in the turn lane that had stopped to allow the plaintiff to cross.
An SUV in one of the northbound lanes had also come to a stop to allow the plaintiff to stop and traffic was backing up as a result. The plaintiff walked in front of the SUV and peered around it to see if the way was clear, but the SUV driver blew its horn and the plaintiff began running across the road. As she ran across the second northbound lane, the defendant’s vehicle struck the plaintiff.
