Harnett Restaurant Closes Following Fatal Wreck

Posted July 21, 2004 4:19 a.m. EDT

— The Harnett County restaurant that was the scene of a deadly accident Monday will not reopen.

Owner Calvin Hardee says he is closing Peggy's Seafood Restarant.

Hardee's 32-year-old son, Dale, was killed when a 14-ton tractor-trailer plowed into the restaurant's dining room Monday.

Witnesses say David Brachearo of Greensboro was speeding and not paying attention when he ran a red light. Investigators say it could be several days before they file charges.
