WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police say they are looking for the driver of a stolen car who crashed into another vehicle, injuring two others in Wilmington.

It happened in the 1800 block of Castle Street around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

Hey, Guest Reply Reflux....

Hey, Guest Reply Reflux.... I thought that you were moving as of last month. Time for a reality check, you have left here so why are your words or comments of any consequence with respect to local news?

Best to you in Vegas where I am certain that you will NEVER encounter the corruption that prevails here in Wilmington.
