Tragic Raleigh Wreck

On August 2nd at 8:20 pm, a catastrophe struck for the O’Neal family.  Twenty-two-year-old Tyeqauze Damar O’Neal was speeding on East Millbrook Road in North Raleigh between Tralee and Burnlee Place, driving 80mph in a 35mph zone, according to police.  Losing control of his 1994 Toyota Camry, he collided head on with a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser.  Riding in the Toyota was O’Neal’s nephew, 7-year-old Kyrail McLean, who was pronounced dead at the scene.  He was the only person in the car that was not buckled in with a seat belt.  Tyequaze O’Neal also died Friday night at WakeMed Hospital due to injuries.  Another passenger in the Toyota named Dominique Leeshaun King ended up in good condition.  The driver of the PT Cruiser, Mackenzie Moore, and a 14-year-old passenger were both reported to be in good condition.

After the wreck, East Millbrook Road was closed for 4 hours between Burnlee and Tralee Place.  The crash was so loud, people from nearby neighborhoods could hear it and rushed out to see what had occurred.  McLean’s family and friends stopped by the scene of the accident to place a teddy bear and basketball in memory of the beloved child nicknamed “little Obama” because of his intelligence and charm.  The O’Neal family has started a memorial fund to help pay for burial costs at Fifth Third Bank.
