Morrisville road reopens after concrete spill

Posted January 30, 2015

— Morrisville police had to direct traffic Friday morning at the intersection of N.C. Highway 54 (Aviation Parkway) and Weston Parkway after a concrete truck flipped on its side and spilled its load onto the road just before 7 a.m.

It took until about 10:30 a.m. until the concrete was clear and the road reopened.  

Police have not said what caused the accident.

    I just don't get folks today. Maybe we should ask how the driver is. Accidents happen. My son stopped at this accident right after it happened. There was someone else standing there and he thought it was the actual truck driver. It wasn't. It was another person who had stopped...who had not called 911 and said the driver was still in the truck. Then the guy drove off. My son got the truck turned off because it was still running and checked on the driver. He said he was hurt but not sure how badly. Emergency crews showed up. Didn't ask the driver if he was ok or anything. Only asked for his license and registration. I'm sure I'll get blasted but I'm so sick of the impatient, uncaring, can't take time out to help their fellow man because they might be inconvenienced. Sorry for you folks who were delayed or who are more worried about grammar or spell check than the well being of someone who was in an accident. Thankful I raised a son who stopped to help, on his way to work.

    I was thinking the same thing---two different intersections?! My best guess is they meant inbetween the two on NC 54?! Or they didn't look at a map:-)

    Police estimated that it would take until mid-afternoon under the concrete was clear and the road reopened. They asked drivers to avoid the area if possible.

    OK WRAL should it not read until the concrete was clear (Not under) sorry I am a printer and I proof read everything.

    Brake check! These guys are always flying way over the speed limit in Cary. They leave some very impressive rubber on the road when they have to stop in a hurry.

    Unfortunately things like that are common even on big news sites these days like CNN. The problem is all news sites are in competition for eyeballs (for ad revenue) and if they do not get an article posted quickly, then a competitor site will and if that happens regularly then they lose visitors to the other site. It is not like the old days of newspaper where there are several hours to edit stories before printing.

    Dear WRAL, Please, please for the love of all that is holy and the English language; hire a proof-reader. 'Police estimated that it would take until mid-afternoon under the concrete was clear and the road reopened.'

    Hah - of course it should cover local news. My point was that you shouldn't be looking for Pulitzer-prize quality. That's all!
    Have a great day!
