One Person Hospitalized After Three Vehicle Accident

One person was hospitalized Saturday morning after a three vehicle accident in Kinston.

Troopers say 17-year-old Kayla Capel was driving a mustang around 10:24 a.m. when she ran a red light at the intersection of Highway 70 and Meadowbrook Drive. They say she hit a Saturn as she attempted to make a left onto Highway 70.

Troopers say Capel then got out her car, but didn't realize her car was still in drive. The car then continued down Highway 70 without a driver. The car eventually turned into oncoming traffic and hit a BMW on Highway 70.

The driver of the Saturn was taken to the hospital. The driver of the BMW was not injured.

Capel has been charged with running a red light. The crash is still under investigation.

      she likely made her mistakes under the stress of being in an accident. it has nothing to do with whether she should breed or not--shes just 17, so don't be heartless! youve made stupid mistakes in your life for sure--if you havent, you will, and youll remember how you said 'dont let this one breed' and apply it to yourself. i think she just isn't ready to be on the road if she cant handle it emotionally. she probably will be okay after a few years, but lets hope she gets to give her wheels a rest until then. glad everyone was okay.

    Too many errors, too soon. Park her now, Mom & Dad. Good thing no one was killed or injured seriously.
