— An 8-year-old boy has died as the result of injuries he received in a weekend accident. The van Glenn Mackal was riding in ran off the road into an abandoned car Saturday on I-85 in Granville County, just north of the Durham County line.

The highway patrol says they believe the boy's mother fell asleep at the wheel.

Doctors treated six other people for minor injuries.
