    There has been a lot of reported deaths of people getting hit by cars this yr. I think in the last week there has been at least three across multiple counties. Prayers out to his family.

    Thanks for clearing that one up. Everybody was wondering if this was technically in Chapel Hill or not...

    While technically it is a Chapel Hill address, that road is outside the city limits in Orange County.
