A gentleman motorcyclist named Shawn Soules was tragically killed on Tuesday night in a crash near Statesville, North Carolina.  The wreck happened near the intersection of N.C. Highway 3 and Johnson Dairy Road.

According to available information, a BMW attempted to turn left onto Johnson Dairy Road and failed to yield the right of way to Mr. Soules.  Mr. Soules, who was 47 years old, died at the scene of the accident.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol is investigating the wreck to determine if charges will be filed.  In this case, it would seem apparent that the driver of the BMW would be charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and a failure to yield.  If we learn more about this accident, we will update this post.
