    WHERE did the incident occur? WHAT was the relationship between the two men? WHAT kind of car was the guy driving?

    WHY is it that WRAL stenographers fail to report on the answers to these questions? These are taught in HS journalism.

    Actually, Folsom lane is off of Page rd, and the address IS technically Morrisville, even though it's in Durham county.

    Folsom Lane is in Durham off of Glenwood Ave near Briar Creek not in Morrisville.
