Here are the top five stories in Raleigh today:

  1. A young child had to be taken to the hospital after being struck by a vehicle on Christmas night. The incident was reported just before 10:10 pm, and the 2-year-old was taken to WakeMed in Raleigh for treatment. Police have not released details regarding where the child was when struck, or the toddler's condition. (CBS17)

  2. Although RDU had a relatively smooth day on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day was impacted by nationwide cancelations. It was uncertain if the impacts were a result of COVID or the weather, but as thousands went through RDU, the impacts were felt. (WRAL)

  3. The North Carolina Department of Public Safety (NCDPS) has issued an Amber Alert for three missing children. The children are believed to have been kidnapped by Orlando Qwantrel McNair Sr., and they are believed to be headed towards Raleigh. (abc13)

  4. With weather in the low 70's, locals enjoyed time in downtown Raleigh on Christmas Day. Some of those people were enjoying some fresh air following family time, and others were taking some of their time to serve food to those in need. (abc11)

  5. Christmas Day tends to be the slowest day for births as many opt to schedule planned cesareans or inductions on other days, but Triangle hospitals gave special welcomes to the first Christmas babies. (abc11)
