Tractor Trailer Kills Motorcyclists Kenneth Jefferson and Arnie Morris in N.C. Interstate 85 Accident

Two gentleman who were part of a motorcycle group called the Black Eagle Ryders MC were killed in a horrific motorcycle accident on Friday morning near Greensboro, North Carolina.

The accident apparently happened when a tractor-trailer driver ran off the side of the road and struck a group of motorcyclists on Interstate 85 near Greensboro, North Carolina.  After hitting the motorcyclists, the tractor-trailer driver then apparently fled the scene of the accident.  Reports now indicate that he is being charged with felony hit-and-run and misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.

The accident happened around 6:00 am and there were a total of six motorcyclists involved who were all on their way to a rally in Atlanta.  They had pulled off the side of the highway when the tractor-trailer ran through them.  One of the motorcyclists was treated for minor injuries and three other bikers were more seriously injured.

Initial reports indicate the driver of the tractor-trailer may have fallen asleep.  If so, there may be serious questions about how much time the driver had been on the road and whether he had exceeded his allotted hours of service time pursuant to federal regulations.  One could expect that investigators have seized his driver’s log to determine his hours of service.

Johnny Lankford Killed in Graham NC Moped Accident

A gentleman named Johnny Lankford was tragically killed in a moped accident near Graham, North Carolina on Sunday night.

The accident happened on Cooper Road at around 6:50 pm.  According to available information, Mr. Lankford was traveling on Cooper Road and was being followed by a second moped.  The second moped rider, Scotty Brown, apparently attempted to pass Mr. Lankford at the same time that Mr. Lankford was attempting a left turn.  The mopeds collided and Mr. Lankford did not survive.  Mr. Brown was hospitalized with hand and wrist injuries.  The NC Highway Patrol is investigating the accident to determine if charges may be brought against Mr. Brown.

This is a very unusual accident in that it involved two mopeds.  Under current North Carolina law, moped riders are not required to maintain any minimum liability insurance.  Therefore, finding insurance coverage for the serious claims in this case will be a unique challenge.  In some cases, a moped rider may be insured under auto policies issued to family members who reside in the same household.  However, a detailed examination of the insurance policies will be necessary to determine the extent of available insurance.
