McCrory unhurt in fender-bender

Posted October 1, 2008

— Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory, the Republican candidate for governor, was involved in a fender-bender Wednesday, his campaign spokeswoman said.

McCrory, who was headed to Winston-Salem for a campaign speech at the time of the wreck, wasn't injured and later made it to his scheduled event, spokeswoman Amy Auth said.

WBTV in Charlotte reported that the car McCrory was riding in was hit by another car around noon as it traveled on South Main Street in Salisbury.

Neither driver was charged.

    AlleyOops, the update says he was riding, so I doubt it. Darn, if he were, we would not even have to have the election. He wins, hands down.

  • Unbroken Oct 1, 2008

    Yet another example of what Easley and the other tree-hugging liberals are doing to our fine state... This fender bender is all their fault!

    This is news. It's not big news. It's not sad news, bad news, good news or happy news. But it's news. I just wish I knew if he was at fault or not.
