MONROE, NC (AP) -- A North Carolina man cutting the grass at a church has been struck and killed and a South Carolina man has been charged.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says 73-year-old Don Lowery of Union County died Saturday after he was struck by a pickup truck while he was mowing the grass in front of the church where his wife is pastor.

Thirty-seven-year-old Ronald Sutton of Lancaster, S.C., has been charged with death by motor vehicle caused by reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.

North Carolina troopers say Lowery was about 30 feet off North Carolina 200 south of Monroe when he was hit.

Lowery was cutting the grass at the Holy Band of Inspiration Church.
