A tragic accident in Tabor City, North Carolina last weekend has claimed the lives of motorcyclists Whitney Jackson and John Nash, III.  The accident happened on NC Highway 410 near O.L. Colemand Road early Sunday morning.

According to available information, Mr. Nash was operating his new Harley Davidson motorcycle with Ms. Jackson riding as a passenger.  A 17 year old girl from Hope Mills, North Carolina apparently glanced at her phone and failed to see the motorcycle stopped in front of her.

After the collision, Ms. Jackson died at the scene and Mr. Nash died several days later at a hospital in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  Ms. Jackson and Mr. Nash were apparently engaged to be married.  She was 29 years old and he was 30 years old.  Charges are pending against the teen driver.
