WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Driving over 100 miles per hour and zig-zagging in and out of traffic, that’s the scene witnesses describe leading up to last month’s deadly motorcycle crash.

According to the accident report, Dre Jordan, 33, was seen driving his motorcycle recklessly and passing around cars on Eastwood Road.

A driving turning left off Eastwood Road onto Rogersville Road says she saw the motorcycle in the distance but didn’t realize he was driving so fast, until it was too late.

One witness says Jordan passed him going about 80-100 miles per hour and shifted to a higher gear when the light changed to yellow and smashed into the car turning onto Rogersville Road.

Jordan died at the scene.

The investigation revealed Jordan was exceeding the posted speed limit and driving in a reckless manner. Due to his speed, Jordan was unable to see a hazard of another car making a left hand turn.

    The dreaded left car turn. Darwin award for not recognizing his dangerous behavior and how it affects everyone else around us

    Some days, you’re the bug. Some days your the windshield. Some days, the decisions you make determine which one of those you get to be.
