Posted March 12, 2004 3:12 a.m. EST

— The state Department of Transportation will change a stretch of road that has had its share of accidents.

Crews will build a traffic island on Walnut Street across from Cary High School. A study showed the area had more accidents than any other Cary high school.

Last October, Kristina Grahn was hurt in a hit-and-run at the crosswalk.

Grahn has since recovered from her injuries. The driver was never found.
