RALEIGH — The family of a North Carolina man who fell to his death while trying to help wreck victims on Interstate 440 in Raleigh says more safety measures are needed in the area.

WRAL-TV reported the family of 33-year-old Carroll “Lee” Eames Jr. of Willow Springs says additional precautions on the road might have saved his life.

Eames was killed about 7 p.m. Friday when he jumped over a barrier between the eastbound and westbound lanes to get out of the way of another vehicle. Police say Eames apparently didn’t realize there was a gap between the roads that opens to Crabtree Creek.

After a similar fatal accident in 2005, the state Transportation Department put a fence on the inside part of the Inner Beltline. Fencing wasn’t added to the inside part of the Outer Beltline, where Eames fell.

CHARLOTTE — The owners of a North Carolina motel are offering one-tenth of their rooms for the homeless, beginning Tuesday.

The Charlotte Observer reported that Imtiaz Shareef and his brother are offering 16 of their rooms in the Days Inn extended-stay suites on Sugar Creek Road in Charlotte to the homeless. Churches or their members would pay for a night’s stay for some.

It’s part of the new Room in the Inn program, which the brothers hope will bring attention to the growing homeless population near the motel.

Shareef also hopes the program will motivate churches and their members to use his motel for other lodging needs.
