No Charges Will Be Filed Against Driver Whose Car Hit Bicyclist

The Highway Patrol tells WITN the driver of a car that fatally hit a bicyclist will not be charged.

The Highway Patrol responded to the September 15th crash on Highway 11, just south of North Pitt High School in Bethel.

Troopers say 20-year-old Alfred Brown Jr. was riding his bike in the left lane of Highway 11 when he was struck and killed by a Volkswagen Jetta around 3 a.m.

Officials say It may have been difficult for the 59-year-old driver of the Jetta to see the cyclist because the cyclist was wearing all black and because of the lane the cyclist was traveling in. The cyclist was not wearing a helmet.

The driver of the vehicle and his wife were treated for minor injuries.
