Authorities provided details of a crash involving a motorcycle and a pickup truck that occurred in Fayetteville about 6:30 p.m. on Monday, July 6.

Soldier Dies In Crash

Police say that a 19-year-old Fort Bragg soldier was driving his motorcycle on Cliffdale Road during the evening hours. A 32-year-old male motorist in a Toyota Tundra allegedly pulled out of the center lane to make a left turn into an apartment complex. The motorcycle then struck the side of the pickup truck as the driver attempted the turn, according to ABC 11 News.

Motorist Faces Charges

Witnesses told authorities that various motorists had stopped and motioned to the driver to complete his turn. The driver of the pickup told authorities that he was unable to see the motorcyclist due to traffic in the area. Nonetheless, authorities charged him with both misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and failure to yield.

Emergency personnel transported the motorcyclist to UNC Hospital, but he did not survive the collision. The driver of the pickup truck and his two children were not injured.

Although the investigation into this particular crash is in its earliest stages, a failure to yield constitutes negligent conduct in certain cases. When it is possible to reasonably assert negligence that negligence lead to injury or death, it is possible to seek compensation under the provisions of North Carolina state law.
