Accident Critically Injures 6 Year Old Canton Girl


What began as a Spring Break trip for members of a Canton family has ended in tragedy in North Carolina in a three vehicle accident.

It happened Monday in Atlantic Beach.

Police said six year old Natalie Teriele remained in critical condition in the trauma unit at Vident Medical Center in Greenville, North Carolina, Wednesday.

The child was one of seven family members in a van being operated by her mother, Kimberly Ann Teriele, when it was struck by a unsecured boat and trailer on Monday.

Atlantic Beach Police Major Jeff Harvey told 7 News the trailer was being towed by Timothy Steven Smith of Kingston, North Carolina, when it broke free.

The trailer traveled into the oncoming lane striking Teriele's 2011 Chrysler van before continuing on and striking a second van.

Harvey said the accident remains under investigation and charges are pending because the boat trailer "may have been improperly secured to the towing vehicle."

Eight other people injured in the crash were treated and released.
