Motorcyclist Kevin Mroczko was killed and his passenger Stephanie Warn was injured after the motorcycle they were riding on was struck from behind by a drunk driver who then fled the scene.

The wreck happened on Sunday morning on US 401 near Byrd Road about two miles north of Bunn Level.  According to available information, a man driving a 2002 Cadillac hit the motorcycle from behind causing Mr. Mroczko and Ms. Warn to be thrown from the bike.  The Cadillac driver then fled the scene but was later apprehended.

Mr. Mroczko was pronounced dead at the scene.  There is not word on Ms. Warn’s injuries.

This is obviously a terrible accident that should never have happened.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families.
