On Tuesday afternoon as the sun was setting, four vehicles managed to become entangled at S. Main Street and Ligon Mill Road.
One person at the scene said his mother-in-law had been driving the black Ford Focus and was traveling south on Ligon Mill Road on a green light when she was struck by a white Kia minivan traveling west on S. Main Street, which allegedly ran a red light.
Watching the video and being out on the scene it was obvious how a driver headed west into the setting sun on S. Main Street could become easily blinded by the exceptionally bright orb in the sky and may inadvertently not been able to see either the traffic light or cross traffic.
After the black Ford Focus was struck the car appeared to release a load of air bags to protect the driver. The driver of that car was being gingerly led away to Wake EMS 22 for additional evaluation.
The minivan came to rest against a Volkswagen Passat and there was some minor damage to a pickup truck at the scene as well. All together there were four vehicles and a sun involved.
Both Wake Forest Fire Department and Wake Forest Police had the scene quickly locked down and professionally handled the accident scene and those involved.
