As a personal injury lawyer who sees at first hand the terrible impacts of drunk driving on a regular basis, I was appalled to read about the death of a Chesapeake woman in Currituck County over the weekend. Police said 29-year-old Lindsey Anne Parsons was killed on Saturday night.
Police later arrested a 22-year-old man and accused him of drunk driving after the death of the pedestrian on a rural road.
Lindsey Anne Parsons from Chesapeake was 29, according to media reports. She died after she was hit by a car on Spot Road in North Carolina.
Spot Road is a rural highway north of Harbinger in Currituck County, N.C. At Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers we help accident victims and their families in north east North Carolina as well as Virginia.

A report on WAVY.com stated Lindsey Anne Parsons was hit by a driver when she was walking on Spot Road at 11:22 p.m. on Saturday night. The driver stopped and called 911 after hitting the pedestrian. She was declared dead on the scene by first responders.
North Carolina Highway Patrol said the driver was arrested and charged with DWI and felony death by vehicle. He was subsequently released on bond.
Our thoughts are with the family of Lindsey Anne Parsons. On numerous occasions, we have seen lives lost on the highways of Virginia and North Carolina due to the actions of drunk drivers.
Earlier this year, a 28-year-old man was charged with involuntary manslaughter – DUI, over a fatal I-264 wreck that claimed the life of a 22-year-old woman.
Police stated the woman from Norfolk lost her life when a pickup crashed into the back of her car in the westbound lane of I-264.
Witnesses to this tragic crash suggested the at-fault driver may have been tailgating on I-264 before the impact.
Drivers who are intoxicated may fail to see pedestrians at night until it’s too late. Recently, Eddie Ufret of Portsmouth, an off duty police officer, was killed crossing Cedar Lane in Chesapeake.
A 72-year-old driver was charged with DUI involuntary manslaughter after the accident.
