— Raleigh police asked for help Saturday morning to identify the driver who hit a man on a mo-ped Friday evening.

Brian John Moore, 28, was traveling east on Western Boulevard near Powell Drive at about 10:30 p.m. when he was struck from behind, police said. He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police are looking for a light-colored, newer-model, four-door sedan which has front-end damage as a result of the crash. They asked that anyone who might assist investigating officers call in an anonymous tip to 919-834-4357.

    Actually self-absorbed DRIVERS is where concerns should be focused, because THEY are the ones causing stuff like this to happen; and would rather blame it on 'they shouldn't.......'

    Scooters are not a big problem so there is no need to outlaw them. There are very few of them on the road and they aren't very fast or dangerous. Cars are where you should focus your concern as the other poster indicated.

    piloterror1 - when are they going to make cars illegal? They seem to be involved in nearly all accidents on the road.

    oh geez - ANOTHER scooter accident. when are they going to make these things illegal. last friday at midnight i saw one going down the beltline doing about 35mph in the middle of the road. and this one almost made headlines, because the two people on it would have been dead, because i almost hit them.

    That's a scooter, not a mo-ped. Very different vehicles with very different applicable laws, speeds, and functionality. Someday WRAL will get one of these right.
