— Police said they plan to charge a driver with second-degree murder in a fatal Dec. 13 wreck at the interchange of N.C. Highway 98 Bypass and Capital Boulevard.

Pedro Adalberto Guity, of 1319 Verdouco Drive in Holly Springs, also will be charged with driving while impaired, police said.

Police said Guity turned off the N.C. 98 Bypass onto the Capital Boulevard exit to the highway at about 3 a.m. Dec. 13 and wound up driving south in the northbound lanes on Capital Boulevard.

Guity's car collided head-on with a car driven by Robert Ernesto Harris, 37, of Franklin County, and Harris was killed in the wreck.

Guity remains hospitalized at WakeMed. The driver of a third car involved in the wreck was treated at the hospital and released.
