    Gotta be a very slow news cycle when a "routine" wreck makes the news like this.

    BTW, when did Johnston County get a "Highway Patrol"? If they belong to Steve Bissell, wouldn't they be Deputy Sheriffs? Maybe the writer covering the police beat knows little about what they write and meant NC State Highway Patrol.
