The drivers involved in a two-vehicle accident in which personal injuries were suffered on the morning of August 11 at the intersection of Swain Street and Skibo Road in Fayetteville have something in common: according to Fayetteville police spokesman Dan Grubb, both were driving without a license.
Grubb said that 55-year-old Ples Martin Jr. and 23-year-old Betty Baker have both been charged with driving on a revoked license.
According to Grubb, Martin was westbound on Skibo in a Ford Explorer and ran a red light at the intersection with Swain. Baker, in a Mitsubishi, was turning onto Skibo from Swain and collided with the SUV, which overturned several times, causing tools and engine parts to spill out onto the road.
Martin received transport to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. He was also charged with running a red light.
