    Since he witnessed the accident that means he did let the police know that or did he break the law by not doing so

    The story does not say it happened in Fuquay.

    If the one word left out and a misspelled word is all one has to complain about today, then someone is having a good day.

    Maybe they updated the headline since the original story but currently it says "near" Fuquay, which is correct. Fuquay is "near" Willow Spring.

    This actually happened in WILLOW SPRING, not Fuquay, the proof on this article is horrible!! This happened right outside the Oakhollow Estates neighborhood.

    My neighbor said a friend of his witnessed the accident. He said the 2 guys in the sedan were yelling at each other in Spanish, having some sort of altercation in the car. Must have distracted the driver.

    "The driver and passenger in the sedan were taken to WakeMed non-life-threatening injured, troopers said."

    Is it really that hard to proof read three little paragraphs? And the sad part is that this article has been updated twice since it was posted, and they still haven't caught this glaring typo.
