Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — The struggling economy is taking a toll in Wake County.

That is apparent from the latest bankruptcy numbers.

Filings skyrocketed in March -- up nearly 44 percent from the same time last year.

The increase hits at a time when filings were slowing or dropping.

The bulk of the filings were personal bankruptcies.
