RALEIGH, N.C. – Early Saturday morning was one like no other for residents along Buffaloe Road.
Imagine going to bed for the night, maybe with the television on for background noise, and being awoken to the sound of a tremendous crash. That is exactly what residents were treated to when a pickup truck careened into a row of trees just before 3:40 a.m.
The 2008 Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by 40-year-old Luis Servin, went left of the roadway, striking the trees and an embankment before coming to a stop. Police say that Servin was driving impaired.
Servin was taken to WakeMed from the scene with injuries that were reported to be serious. No one else was injured in the accident, and Buffaloe Road was closed for approximately three hours while officials investigated the accident.
Servin was eventually charged with having no operator’s license, failing to maintain a travel lane, no seat belt, and driving while impaired.
