Parents killed in North Carolina crash by a DWI driver, their child in critical condition


A tragic incident occurred in Garner, North Carolina, where an 8-year-old boy lost his parents in a fatal accident caused by a driver under the influence of alcohol.

The incident took place on Monday afternoon on US Business 70 at New Rand Road. The collision involved three vehicles – a silver Chevrolet Trailblazer, a dark blue Mazda CX5 Select, and a black Cadillac Escalade. The Trailblazer ran a red light while traveling west on US 70, hitting the Mazda that was heading south on New Rand Road.

The victims were identified as 28-year-old Tyler Campbell and his 29-year-old wife, Susan Campbell, who tragically lost their lives in the crash. Their son, 8-year-old Miles Campbell, survived but was critically injured and taken to the hospital.

The driver of the Trailblazer, 25-year-old Jordan Alexander Porter, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was also hospitalized. Porter was charged with driving while impaired, and further charges are anticipated.

The Escalade was slightly damaged, but the people inside were unharmed.

Porter seems to have a long-standing relationship with traffic violations, dating all the way back to 2015.

ABC 11 reported that on New Year’s Day 2018, he was charged wit drinking alcohol while under 21 and not staying in his lane. Back in June 2015, he was caught running a red light, a charge similar to the recent allegation made by the police. Additionally, court documents revealed that just last month he was ticketed for speeding 21 mph over the limit.


    • I google searched him and finally found some associate names and searched them on Facebook. It must have been his mom’s account or someone very close to him because it had tons of pics of him and his wife and his kids. He lives in Zebulon. I just went back and checked the woman’s page and she has removed everything. It’s odd there is not much about him in the reporting. Sad really. The family must know someone in the system that is keeping the mud from being slung I guess.

  1. This POS should NEVER be allowed to drive, or for that matter, EVER be free again!! I pray they lock him up for life for multiple murders. He had a choice, these victims did not.

  2. POS – when will we learn to stop putting up with deviants in our society. Three lives could have been saved if we took safety seriously.

  3. Jordan Alexander Porter has hurt more than the ones that he killed. He has a young child of his own that he won’t be seeing while he is in prison. All for the want of an alcohol buzz. Hope it was worth it to you buddy.
