    To "Shannon" how do you know they were discharged from the hospital and the extent of their injuries? I certainly hope you are not a hospital employee disclosing that information. If so I guess you missed the email about releasing information to the media....

    MrT........where are you on this one saying how stupid the driver was?? You have every right to say so in this case. I'll do it for you. If people would stop being idiots on the road, thinking it is their own personal racetrack, running lights, and being disrespectful to others, these things would stop happening. Of course, accidents do happen. Down here there are no "accidents", only wrecks by moronic drivers.

    There were 2 cops at the firetower/memorial intersection. 1 was about to lose his mind. He was obviously overwhelmed by the situation. He should not be assigned to direct traffic again.

    the sad part was at the firetower stop light where cops were detouring the north bound lane people would constantly run the red light, and know the police wasnt waiving them through. Maybe redlight camras wouldnt be such a bad idea in this town...oh AND FIX THE RR TRACKS ON GREENVILLE BLVD BY BESTBUY!!!

    The driver of the mini van and her two sons were discharged from the hospital. They are doing fine--no serious physical injuries! Thank you to the people who have inquired about their well-being. They were definitely lucky today--our God is good!!

    The problem with Greenville is you have people going way under the speed limit causing people to get mad and speed to make up the time. If everyone would do the speed limit, stop yapping on the cell phone, and stop trying to cater to their kids while in the car we wouldn't have a lot of these problems. Hope everyone is ok!!

    Lets just hope that the young kids are ok.

    You don't have the room to talk, especially if you live in New Bern. The crime is just as bad or worse there. So, unless you live in Greenville on a daily basis, you can't possibly know what you're talking about.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Renee, Raymond, CJ, and Gage and the rest of their family. I hope no one was injured.
