Previous Styory:

A late afternoon motorcycle ride turned deadly for a Beaufort County woman on Sunday.

Troopers said 58-year-old Peggy Sullivan of Pinetown was riding her motorcycle along Highway 264 around 5:30 p.m. near the intersection of Lizzard Slip Road Sunday afternoon.

Investigators said 17-year-old James Jarvis had a boat attached to his truck, but the brake lights on the boat were not working.

As Jarvis was slowing to make a turn, Sullivan did not realize the truck was slowing until it was too late, according to troopers.

Sullivan went off the road to the right to avoid colliding with the boat and truck, but then hit a fire hydrant and a ditch before being thrown from the bike.

Troopers said Sullivan was first taken to Vidant Beaufort Hospital, then was airlifted to Vidant Medical Center where she died hours later.

Investigators said charges may be pending against the driver of the truck, but the investigation is on going.
