Moving truck employee dies after being hit by vehicle in August


DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — A man hired to help a family move in Davidson County has died three weeks after he was hit by a car.

Troopers say charges are pending against the driver but wouldn’t elaborate.

The driver told troopers she tried to go around a moving truck that was parked on the side of Craver Road in Welcome last month.

When she saw a car coming at her, troopers say she swerved to the right and hit Kristen Simpson, a mother and her 10-year-old daughter — who were all in the front yard.

Simpson died from his injuries on Thursday.

The mother and daughter are still recovering.
