Good Samaritans killed in Raleigh

(Raleigh-AP) -- Six people who stopped to help victims of a traffic accident in Raleigh were killed when a van plowed into the scene of the earlier crash. A State Highway Patrol spokesman says today that the van's driver is charged with six counts of involuntary manslaughter and driving while intoxicated. Sergeant Everett Clendenin says 32-year-old Larry Robert Veeder of Raleigh is being held in the Wake County jail on 100-thousand-dollar bond. The accidents happened Saturday night near North Carolina State University's football stadium about two hours after N-C State's win over Virginia. Clendenin says it isn't yet known if any of those involved were among the nearly 54-thousand people attending the football game. Those killed were identified as: - Dennis Wayne Bowes, 28, of Cary; - Robert Alfaro Junior, 46, and his wife, Jean Marie Louise Alfaro, 48, both of Matthews; - Bryan Matthew Tutor, 29, of Coats; - Nolan Phillips Myers, 18, of Carver, Minnesota. Also killed was an unidentified man on a bicycle who stopped at the scene.
