— A moped crash in Johnston County sent the driver to a hospital late Thursday. Alcohol was a factor, authorities said.

John David Culpepper, 42, was driving northeast on Parker Road when he came to an intersection that has a traffic island. Instead of going around the island, he hit it, officials said.

Culpepper was airlifted to WakeMed with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
