— A Fayetteville man is facing charges after a crash on a collapsed road.

Fayetteville police said officers responded to a crash along a stretch of collapsed road on Bingham Drive near the intersection of Tiree Drive at about 4:10 p.m.

Authorities said Darrell Musselwhite, 68, drove his 2015 Nissan Rogue around barriers blocking the roadway at the intersection of Bingham Drive and Bunce Road and crashed into the roadway which had collapsed as a result of flooding from Hurricane Matthew.

Musselwhite was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for evaluation. He was charged with driving around a barricade into a safety zone.

    I get it was dumb for him to do that, but no you charged him with a misdemeanor in which NC tax payers will have to cover the charge...ppl like that don't need to be charged, they only need a smacking across the face...

    And he chose to ignore it because he is too important to go around.
