    Apparently it was a single vehicle accident and the driver was injured and went to look for aid, I don't see anything wrong with that!

    WRAL has a bad habit of sensationlizing things to fit the way it wants the news to appear.

    What do you want them to do? Wait around for a tow-truck to show up?
