    The one that was hurt in the crash and airlifted was NOT being chased, he was on his way to work and was hit by one of the people running from the law.

      Sources have told the Pee Dee Post….that’s what young Mr. Spradlin writes when he’s posting gossip without even trying to get to the truth. Either he needs to learn how to get his facts straight or we should all just stop taking him seriously.

        No Mr. “Tomorrow,” we have to rely on sources because the PDP simply can’t be at the scene of every single incident. If you know anything about journalism, then you know that to be true.

        Sometimes it turns out that our sources – which are human – make mistakes. As mentioned when this story was first linked to the PDP’s FB page, we’ll be trying to get additional information from authorities later this morning. Stay tuned. Thank you for your patience.
