— There is something new and different about the Raleigh intersection that was the scene of a deadly accident two weeks ago.

Traffic lights will replace stop signs at the intersection of Nowell Street and Highway 54.

Crews have been installing the signals since September. The lights were not hung yet when a deadly accident happened two weeks ago.

Two people were injured, and six people died when an alleged drunk driver plowed into them.

There is no word on when the lights will be operational.

One victim of that accident is still in the hospital. Doctors upgraded Walter Manning to good condition.

Manning and his friend, Coy Woolard, were the only people who survived being hit by that van.
