    I know one of the people involved in this accident. They underwent extensive testing and were released from the hospital. Very luckily, barely injured. Thank you to the local heroes who helped out.

    Geee...When are folks going to learn that WITN and other stations are not perfect. We ALL make mistakes. Yes, the wreck was at the intersection of 17 and Bragaw. Where are the comments like...Chocowinity EMS, police and fire officials did an outstanding job this morning! Or, why are folks released so soon after being involved in a major accident? Victims, follow those instructions given to you and seek help if you experience any of those signs or symptoms. Trust me! Be safe and God bless. Thanks to our local fire, police and EMS!

    Thanks for your input. The original information we received was Highway 33. We have changed the story to reflect Highway 17.

    The accident was at Hwy. 17 and Bragaw Lane, not Hwy. 33. Any word on the status of those injured?

    Accident was at Bragaw and Hwy 17. WITN reporters do not know any roads in BC, because they are always reporting about G'ville and Jacksonville.

    WITN: if the accident happened at the corner of HWY 33 and Bragaw Lane, why is HWY 17 on the footage you are showing, because Tiger and the Wilco Hess/Burger King are at the corner of Bragaw Lane and HWY 17????
