Two drivers were hurt after one lost control of her silver Honda on Griffith Street near Davidson Day School around 2:15pm Wednesday. The Honda crossed a median and struck a second car on the other side of the road before landing on its roof.
The Honda driver had to be extricated from her car and was later taken by ambulance to the hospital. The second driver was seen talking to rescue workers on the roadside, but also was taken to a hospital for observation.
Griffith Street was closed in both directions just east of the Jetton Street roundabout while fire and Medic treated the drivers of both the Honda and the second car, a black SUV. Read the full story

Bill Trull, 46, who lives on Northeast Drive in the Spinnaker Reach condos, off I-77 Exit 30, was badly burned on his legs after he attempted to blow out one of the citronella candles on his back porch July 8. The injuries were so serious that he missed a month's work as an administrative officer at the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office. Read the full story
