    Let's get to the real reason this story was posted. Someone lost their life in this wreck, and that someone was Keith Hussey. Keith was my brother-in-law, and one of the best guys that you would ever meet. Keith's best friend was also killed in the crash, a dog by the name of Scruff. The two were best friends to the very end. As for those wanting to send flowers to the family, one could contact Kinza's Florist in Robbins 910-948-4441, and she could contact the family. Your prayers are greatly appreciated during this very difficult time that our family is going through.

    Oh yeah and for the others not to sure. But I do know the one in the other truck wasn't badly injuried. Or so I was told. You know the hear say. Haven't heard anything else about the other's in the car with Keith.

    "Names and ages!!!! The masses are waiting to see if it was a drunken teen or illegal alien."

    To this comment to you masses that are waiting to see if he was drunken or illegal. News flash he was a 28 year old man that was not drinking on his way home in the back seat of the car the friend was driving and wasn't from the chatham county area and was not familiar with the area. You know people make mistakes some people are just really stupid and don't understand how mistakes happen like little psychobabble who hasn't a clue to real life! Oh and for your name you were wanting, his name was Keith Hussey and he was the best friend that any person could have. He was my husbands best friend and a very respectable guy!!!! And he will be greatly missed by many people. So until you people can get your stories straight don't critize until you know the truth!! Thats why the world is like it is. BECAUSE OF STUPID PEOPLE!

    Psychobabble, the young man that lost his life was a friend of my daughter and her husband and he was not a drunken teen or an illegal alien. He was a passenger in the car that ran the stop sign. The whole community mourns this young man and it seems the comments are very uncaring on this page. What if it had been your son or daughter>?

    Very sad. I only have one question. Since when is a police officer skilled enough in emergency medicine to determine that injuries sustained as a result of a motor vehicle accident are "not life threatening", only "serious"??

    1crazygirl...by the way you are right...it does happen everywhere...I was in hospital at Rex for the first time in my life and the care was not up to my expectations...some great, some bad...

    My thoughts and prayers to the ones involved in this accident...alien or not, accidents happen and someone's life was lost.

    This story is not about CCH, but since everyone is bashing CCH I have to add my two cents worth. Both of my children were born there and the care was OK but the billing dept could never post payments to the proper account...got turned over to a collection agency both times for a bill already paid. But the worst was with my parents...they will go nowhere else because Pinehurst is too far for my 80 year old Mom to drive. My 86 yr old dad was there and needed a bed change - he was in bad shape and one person could not move him alone...the nurse brought my Mom the sheets and told her she would have to do it...the nurse didn't have time! Then my Mom went to the ER on a weekend for some lab work and because the bloodwork is required for a scan, they assumed she needed that too (not on dr's orders) and she waited for over 2 hours!!! Should have taken 15 minutes just for the bloodwork. Tenet Healthcare should be run out of town! They are incompetent!
