Driver injured, charged in three-car wreck near Garner

Posted March 27, 2013

— A 22-year-old man was charged with driving while impaired and reckless driving early Wednesday in a three-car wreck on Interstate 40 near Garner, according to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

Troopers said Meisen Li was weaving in and out of the westbound lanes near U.S. Highway 70 around 12:15 a.m. when he ran off the road to the right, struck a guard rail, over-corrected and then spun around. 

A Sheetz van crashed into the front of Li's 2007 Sports Audi and then a Toyota Camry hit both vehicles. 

Only Li was injured. He was taken to WakeMed, where he was listed in stable condition Wednesday morning. 

No other information was released.

    jaydosse, if it were only that simple! They 'do' go without insurance, then when caught, get slapped on the wrist, and go out and cause accidents again, usually injuring or killing others. The penalties are not nearly stiff enough, so we 'all' end up paying.

    Why should folks with good clean driving records have to pay ever increasing insurance rates because of these DUI offenders??? Why not have the good drivers rates lowered and make the chronic DUI offenders, speeders, etc pay higher rates to cover the losses by the auto insurance companies? If the DUI offenders can't afford high auto insurance rates then let them stumble home drunk. If they drive without insurance and are caught, then off to jail they go.

    I saw all the marks and debris coming into Raleigh this morning, wondered what had happened. Glad the impaired one was injured for a change. Sorry it had to involve others at all.

    So...what is a "2007 Sports Audi"? Trying to make it sound like a sports car for some reason? Perhaps it should be a "2007 Audi Q5 crossover"?
