Man dies after driver runs red light, causes 3-car crash, CMPD says

CHARLOTTE — A driver is accused of running a red light at a west Charlotte intersection, causing a deadly three-car crash, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Officers were called around 3:45 p.m. on March 25 to Wilkinson Boulevard at Morris Field Drive for the crash. When they arrived, they found a 2008 Ford Edge with damage to its front, a 2019 Toyota Corolla (Yellow Cab) with right side and roof damage, and a 2009 Nissan Altima with right side damage.

The Ford’s driver, Terence McBride, was taken to the hospital but was not seriously hurt. The passengers in the Corolla, Leon Daniels and one woman, were both taken to the hospital. Daniels died from his injuries on Wednesday, police said.

The driver of the Nissan declined to be taken to the hospital.

Investigators believe the Corolla and the Nissan were driving on Wilkinson Boulevard when McBride, who was driving on Morris Field Drive, failed to stop at a red light. Police said he drove into the intersection and hit the Corolla, causing it to slide and hit the right side of the Nissan, flipping in the process.

McBride was given a citation for driving with a suspended license, having an expired registration and driving with no vehicle insurance, CMPD said. After Daniels died, detectives also took out a misdemeanor death by vehicle arrest warrant for McBride.

Police said as the investigation into the crash continues, they want anyone who witnessed it or has information about the case to call Det. Mercedes at 704-432-2169, extension 5. Information can also be left anonymously with Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or by clicking here.
