Cherry Point Marine Killed In Motorcycle Wreck

A Cherry Point Marine who was about to retire was killed in a motorcycle accident early Saturday morning according to troopers.

The NC Highway Patrol says 37-year-old old Richard Madore was riding a 2003 Honda motorcycle around 2:15 in the morning when he took the US 70 westbound ramp from downtown New Bern.

Troopers say Madore went around the curve too fast and the motorcycle flipped sideways. Madore was ejected and struck a sign.

Troopers are awaiting a toxicology report to see if alcohol was involved or not. They say weather conditions were not a factor in the accident.
