The Highway Patrol has released more information about Tuesday's deadly bicycle accident in Bertie County.
Killed was 40-year-old Anthony Lewis of Windsor.
Trooper J.O. Walter says Lewis was riding his bike on Highway 17 around 5:30 p.m. when he was hit from behind by a vehicle. The impact threw the man into a ravine along the highway and he died at the scene.
Walter says the car's driver, 28-year-old Andrew Owens of Greenville, stopped and called 911, staying with Lewis until first responders arrived.
Owens has been charged with death by vehicle.
The Highway Patrol says a bicyclist was killed Tuesday night on Highway 17 when he was hit by a vehicle.
Trooper Walter tells WITN the family of the victim has not been notified, so he can not release the name of the person killed in a wreck about 6:00 p.m. on Highway 17 just North of the Bertie-Martin County line.
Trooper Walter says he will release details on the type of vehicle involved and any possible charges Wednesday.
