Bethel Man Killed In Edgecombe County Moped Accident

A moped driver from Bethel was killed in an accident last night outside of Rocky Mount.

The Highway Patrol says 50-year-old Edward Brady, Jr. was on the moped heading west on U.S. 64 when a van hit it from behind.

Britney Alston of Raleigh was driving an AutoZone parts van out of Raleigh. The 23-year-old was charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and failure to reduce speed.

The fatal accident happened a half mile east of the Rocky Mount city limits around 9:35 p.m.

By law, mopeds are not supposed to be on limited access highways like U.S. 64.
