WBTV.com reported in November that a North Carolina Union County sheriff’s deputy was killed when a tractor-trailer collided with his patrol car. The collision occurred in Monroe, North Carolina on Highway 74 near S. Sutherland Avenue. The tractor-trailer flipped onto the car killing the deputy. The driver was charged with death by vehicle, a misdemeanor. The deputy, Sgt. Jeffrey Wayne Greene had a wife, two children and five grandchildren.
This case will give rise to several types of cases. The cases will begin with the appointment of a personal representative for the estate of the deputy. Normally, the deputy would have prepared a will and designated his wife to be the personal representative, but if not, either she could step up or if no one steps up after a certain amount of time, someone else can be appointed by the Clerk of Court. The two main actions are a workers’ compensation claim and a negligence claim.
