Car Crashes Into Raleigh House

Posted March 8, 2007

— Three people are recovering after an accident Thursday morning in which a car hit a house in Raleigh.

Police said a car, driven by Christy Farrington, of Deercover Lane, was trying to turn onto Rush Street shortly after 9:30 a.m., when it was struck by another vehicle, driven by Samuel Graham, of Woodlake Place.

The force of the impact caused Graham's vehicle to crash into a house at 431 Tanner Drive.

According to the wreck report, Graham had apparently suffered from a "medical emergency." He was taken to WakeMed and was listed in good condition Thursday afternoon.

Farrington and a passenger in her car were taken to WakeMed. They were later discharged.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.

    How can you assume one sex is a better driver than the other?

    I am going to go out on a limb and say we are (men and women) are equally bad drivers.

    Let's get the city council to change the name from Rush street to "Take Your Time" or "Hang Up And Drive" street.

    I hope the injured people taken to WakeMed don't have insurance with United HealthCare.
