Highway patrol: Raleigh driver caused I-95 wreck

Posted September 25, 2014

— A driver from Raleigh faces charges of speeding and driving without a license for causing the crash that closed northbound lanes of Interstate 95 Wednesday afternoon east of Fayetteville.

According to the state Highway Patrol, Rashad Ja-Phori Muldrow, 22, of 830 Peyton St., lost control of his Ford F-150 as he entered the interstate from N.C. Highway 24. Muldrow's truck crossed the median and rolled in front of a UPS truck driven by Romondt Taylor, 54, of North Chesterfield, Va.

Both trucks caught fire, and the highway was shut down for about an hour, troopers said. Traffic in the area was restricted to the service lane for about 5 hours. For a short while, N.C. 24 was closed where it crosses I-95.

Both men were injured. Muldrow had a broken arm and Taylor a hip injury, although neither required overnight hospitalization, troopers said.

    Looks like UPS has a lot of loss in this wreck. Mr. Muldrow should be required to reimburse UPS for any loss of money, including the truck and trailer. Of course, this is only IF, he is actually guilty of these charges.

    First word in the headline is "Raleigh" but is that the important thing, or even important? Put it down in the story. At least they didn't say "Pickup"

    Stupidity carries a price, sometimes for us all.
