Wake County News

FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. (WNCN) — It was quite the wake-up call for a Wake County homeowner on Wednesday morning.

North Carolina State Highway Patrol troopers say a driver slammed into someone’s parked RV early on Wednesday along Johnson Pond Road in Fuquay-Varina.

Timothy Johnson said he was just getting ready to wake up for work when he heard a loud crash and someone came banging on his door.

“I told him to get away from the door, I’m gonna let the dogs out, and he says, ‘I can’t, my car’s flipped over,’ and I said, ‘Go back to your car,’ and he says, ‘My car’s in your driveway,'” recalled Johnson. “He walked right over and patted on the car and says, ‘It’s right here in your driveway. I can’t go nowhere.'”

Johnson said he’s just glad to know the driver was OK.

A CBS 17 photographer on scene saw a man taking a field sobriety test along the road in front of the house. It did not appear that he passed.

Anquan Antonio Smith, 30, of Raleigh, was charged with driving while impaired in connection with the crash.

He was given a $500 secured bond and has a court appearance scheduled for Thursday.

No one was injured in the incident.
