Raleigh, N.C. — Police are investigating a wreck that injured three people late Saturday.
The incident occurred at the intersection of Fayetteville Road and Woodcrest Drive around 9:30 p.m.
A driver of a Volkswagen Beetle ran into another vehicle, according to police. Troopers said the car's brakes failed and that alcohol was also a factor.
The driver of the Beetle, a 59-year-old woman, was charged with DWI and failure to reduce speed. She remains in the hospital with serious injuries.
Two people, a driver and a passenger from the other car involved, were also transported to the hospital. Officials said they will be okay.
