— A summertime chore turned dangerous for a Raleigh man Friday. He was hit by a car while mowing grass off Lake Wheeler Road.

The driver, 29-year-old Chris Cozart, went off the right side of the road and ran over the man on his riding lawn mower.

Cozart said he lost control trying to swat away a bee that flew into his car.

Both men were taken to WakeMed and are expected to be OK.
