Wolfpack starter unhurt in car accident
RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina State forward Marcus Melvin escaped injury Monday when the sport utility vehicle he was driving went down an embankment near campus.
The 6-foot-8 senior, the team's second-leading scorer last season, is not expected to miss practice time, the school said.
Melvin apparently hit a slick spot while pulling into rush hour traffic, slammed the brakes and hit a curb that sent the vehicle down a hill, said Annabelle Vaughan, the sports information director. Melvin and was not hurt and climbed out of the vehicle, she said.
