— A car crashed into Nash General Hospital's emergency room entrance early Monday, according to hospital officials.

No one was injured in the crash, which happened around 3:15 a.m. A hospital spokesman said the driver, 54-year-old Wendy McCabe, of Roanoke Rapids, was taken into the hospital to be checked out.

Rocky Mount Cpl. Michael Lewis said McCabe was charged with careless and reckless driving, and he estimated that the doors of the ER sustained about $25,000 worth of damage and will take about three weeks to repair.

    Being Nash General, he probably had to wait 4 hours or more to be seen. I went there with a broken neck in 2004, and they didn't even do an x-ray. Told me I had sprained my neck, gave me some hydrocodone and sent me home. Days later I was having emergency surgery to repair my neck. They are worthless.

    I just hope no one was hurt.

    The latter would have been my guess, but it's just a guess since they didn't report charges being filed. We'll know soon enough if they update the story

    If not a drunk driver, most likely someone who should have stopped driving many years before but in defiance of common sense, refused to give up their "right" to drive (which does not actually exist).

    Probably another accident where "oops my foot hit the gas pedal instead of the break" or the person thought this was an Emergency Drive-Thru. You choose ;-)
