    The car in this accident was a total mess. Hope the driver survived. How come such slow reporting??? This was ongoing all day yesterday.

    Hope everyone's okay. I encountered a wrong-way driver in downtown Durham a few weeks ago. The woman was driving an SUV and talking on her cell. I honked my horn, and she had absolutely no reaction.
