    jjsmith1973, Gorman street is not Cary. In fact there was a bus on the street waiting to be able to get through. The wolfline runs just about 24/7. Also this is a residential area, no bars. Sidewalks on both sides of the street. I walk on them often.

    Once again. I have said it a lot in the past couple weeks one news story after another. This region seems to have something against sidewalks. Which there are several areas it needs it. There is very little public transportation, it is hard to find taxi as in certain areas such as cary they aren't even allowed to have a taxi sign like most. Most taxi aren't allowed to park outside establishment unless called upon. Yet the state has some of the harshest DWI laws, don't let students have cars, some of the highest gas taxes, have high car taxes. If they want people to walk or use other modes safly they need to start changing something. Also they need to change zoning laws for establishment that are allowed to serve. They shouldn't be allowed to be in the middle of no where. Of course the state has a vested interest in alcohol sales so they will let them do whatever

    I am amazed that his injuries were not life-threatening. He was under the car with his head just behind the driver side front window. Also the google map location is wrong. It was on the other side of Kaplan.
