Wet roads responsible for two-vehicle wreck in Clayton; five injured

Posted March 29, 2014

— Five people, including two children, were injured late Friday when two vehicles collided on Little Creek Church Road in Clayton, state Highway Patrol officials said.

Troopers responded to the scene, which was near the Clayton Bypass, at about 9:30 p.m. after a full-sized van lost control and hit a Ford Explorer head on.

All four people inside the Explorer and the driver of the van were taken to WakeMed with minor injuries, troopers said.

Investigators said wet roads were the cause of the wreck. The driver of the van will be charged with a lane control violation.

    "Wet road responsible for wreck"
    How can a road be at fault
    Very-misleading headline.
    If it was the road's fault then why was a driver charged?

    How were the wet roads the cause yet a driver is charged with a lane violation. Sounds like to me someone was going to fast for conditions therefore the road is not the cause the driver is though the road conditions were a factor.
