WILMINGTON, NC (AP) — Police have now arrested a 20-year-old truck driver in the death of a motorcycle rider in Wilmington.

Charles Chesley McKeithan of Leland is charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle following a crash that killed 42-year-old Richard Donald Epperson of New Hanover County.

Police said McKeithan was pulling his truck out onto the highway last week when he struck Epperson as he drove by on his motorcycle.

Epperson died later that night at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

It wasn’t clear Tuesday if McKeithan has a lawyer.
