    Was behind woman in Jeep when she pulled out from Shoppers Parking Lot. She did not look, did not touch brakes and was speeding up fast when she got plowed. Lucky she did not kill anyone. Very careless and dumb, probably on cellphone

      She didn't get plowed. She plowed me. Yes, she sped up before hitting me. Me and my little girl are lucky to be alive.

    Sorry to say but YO is wrong. It is an accident no matter what because it was not intentional by at least on of the partys. I will say they need more than a paint job. Have a safe and nice day

    A jeep rolls over several times,how fast was this person going, time for the city or the police to step in here and find out what's going on before that new High School is built,mark my words there will be a kid killed there the first week it opens.

    Something needs to be done about this intersection. Making a left onto Topsail Road travelling south on Columbus is dangerous as you cannot see what's coming until you're half way out in the intersection. It should be left turn on arrow only. I'm not sure how many accidents it will take for the city to do something about that!!
