Police investigating after early-morning hit and run crash near UNCW campus

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after dispatchers say officers responded to the scene of a hit and run crash at a Wilmington intersection early this morning.

Dispatchers say the call came in just before 2:30 a.m., reporting the crash at the intersection of College Road and Randall Parkway, which is at the corner of UNCW’s campus.

Wilmington Police, firefighters and EMS all responded to the scene, where we are not sure yet whether or not someone was hurt. Dispatchers say the crash was called in as a hit and run, but they would not say whether the driver hit was riding a moped or in another car at the time.

We are waiting to hear back from WPD to get more details about the crash, and will update this story when more information is available.

House OKs bill allowing more electronic filings

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Most political campaigns – including those for the legislature – would be required to file campaign finance reports electronically with North Carolina’s elections board starting in 2017 in a bill that cleared the House.

The requirement was added to a series of largely technical changes to elections and campaign laws passed Tuesday. Similar language requiring broad electronic filing passed the House last year but sat in the Senate.

The amendment by Democratic Rep. Pricey Harrison would apply to any political committee that raises or spends $10,000 for an election cycle. Right now electronic filing applies to candidates for statewide office and committees that give to statewide candidates, with a $5,000 threshold.

A separate measure approved Tuesday makes clear lawfully-cast absentee votes by residents who die before an election will count.
