Crash into a BUS????

I went by this shortly after it happened...the truck was really damaged. Glad everyone was ok. One has to wonder though....how do you slam into the back of a BUS? Drivers today just aren't focused on the task at hand....they are in too much of a hurry...distracted by phones...make stupid decisions that endanger us all. Carolina Beach Road is a hotbed for disastrous left hand turns. I know because it is my daily commute route. The city really needs to work on this stretch between Greenfield Lake and Shipyard and develop a road system such as in Leland on Village Road to prevent left hand turns. Vllage Road also used to be so dangerous because drivers would take unnecessary risks to make left turns. The redesigned traffic pattern has now prohibited drivers from doing so and has improved traffic flow and safety for all. I realize I have departed from the original story but instead am using this forum to express the need for real changes that solve the problems of Carolina Beach Road. Back to the original story...pay attention drivers!!!

To the driver of the pickup...

that hit the WAVE bus...be prepared for your mailbox to overflow with letters of solicitation from every law firm in town that handles personal injury cases.

I was rear-ended in late April on Independence Boulevard near the Food Lion by a lady who decided to use the rear of my Jeep, instead of her brakes, to stop.

Two days later...14 letters of solicitation including two from Thom Goolsby's office. The rest were from the firms that advertise heavily on television plus a couple of letters from firms in Goldsboro, Raleigh, and Greensboro.
