    This fatal accident has a direct connection with the Luc Lounge located on Paula st.The driver was speeding away on Hodges st and turned on Wake Forest rd in to on coming traffic. The 911 caller heard shots fired,the car was speeding away,concealed weapon was found,2.30 am and Luc Lounge is the only club open from 2.00 to 6.00 am and is located about 100 yards from where this accident actually took place.Bingo...that's your connection,it doesn't take a genius to figure this out. It was just a few months ago when a young lady was killed after leaving the Luc Lounge. Paula st has been nothing but a cesspool for years and is only getting worse.When is the city of Raleigh and it's officials going to realize that something has to be permanently done about the crime on Paula st? On record...noise violations reported every weekend,shots fired,stabbings,fighting,illegal alcohol sales by clubs and even deaths related to these clubs and the list goes on and on. Time for action City officials.
