Wreck at Harris Teeter U MallPaul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, General
When we went into the HT, we saw moms and daughters selling Girl Scout cookies in the dry on the walkway. We already have six boxes so we went on in. On the way out the whole area was blocked by fire and safety equipment. A car was somehow sideways between pillars and onto the covered walk. Cookie boxes were all over. One mom, Elise Kelley was strapped down and getting oxygen. Around the corner, someone else was getting help. The situation was not a happy one.
Oddly, we heard nothing when inside the store. It all must have come about quickly and tragicly.
Chapel Hill has suffered several terrible accidents involving pedestrians lately. This one will I pray not end as others have.
UPDATE: News and Observer and Herald-Sun have brief stories on this.
UPDATE 2: News and Observer ran a more detailed story today (2/21/06).
