PEMBROKE — A 72-year-old Pembroke man was killed Friday when the motorcycle he was driving was hit by a vehicle being driven by a pizza delivery man, according to the state Highway Patrol.
Billy Locklear, of Brittons Farm Drive, was driving his 2007 Yamaha motorcycle on N.C. 72 about three miles north of Pembroke when he was struck by a 2000 Chevrolet passenger car driving the opposite direction, according to a report filed by Trooper J.W. Scott.
The driver of the car, 22-year-old Douglas Hancock Hall Jr., was attempting to make a left turn onto a private drive and did not yield to let Locklear pass, the report said. The accident occurred at about 6 p.m. near St. Anna Road.
Locklear’s motorcycle was going about 30 mph and the car was traveling at about 10 mph when they collided, the report said. Both vehicles came to a stop in the eastbound shoulder of N.C. 72.
Hall, of Jockey Drive in Raeford, is charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and failure to yield right-of-way.
Neither Hall, nor a passenger in his car, was injured.
Patrol Sgt. Daniel Hilburn said Hall was delivering a pizza when the accident occurred, but did not know which company employs him.
