A gentleman named James Wright was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash on Sunday afternoon near Staley, North Carolina. The crash happened on NC Highway 49 at the intersection with Whites Chapel Road at around 3:10 pm.
According to available information, a woman in a Honda SUV started to turn left onto White Chapel Road from NC 49 and then turned back to her right and hit Mr. Wright as he was traveling in the same direction. The impact forced Mr. Wright off the road and he struck a utility pole.
Mr. Wright sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, North Carolina for treatment.
At this point there is no indication of charges against the woman driver but it would appear that she should be charged with at least a safe movement violation.
