Luke Maye, one of the stars of North Carolina’s run to the 2017 NCAA tournament men’s basketball championship, was involved in a scary car accident on Interstate 85 Thursday that included Maye’s car flipping several times and coming to rest upside down.

Luke Maye still made it to both his youngest brother Drake’s middle-school graduation Thursday night and to Huntersville Elementary Friday morning -- where Maye was scheduled to be the guest speaker for the graduation ceremony at his former elementary school.
