FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — Police say a wreck involving an
unlicensed teen driver who turned in front of a motorcycle has left
a Fort Bragg soldier in serious condition.

was driving a station wagon with her 10-year-old sister in the car
when she tried to make a left turn into a gas station.

The collision was followed by a five-car pileup as motorists
swerved to avoid the soldier, who was thrown 20 feet from the point
of impact.

He was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center with serious
injuries. Hospital officials said the injuries did not appear to be
life threatening.

Police have not released the names of the drivers. No other
injuries were reported.
