Jones County Motorcycle Accident

Two motorcycles that are believed to have been racing crashed Friday night in Jones County.

Troopers say the accident happened on Mary Tate Road and Watering Pond Road at 10:46 p.m. on Friday night.

They say both motorcycles were traveling west on Mary Tate Road when the bike riding in the back pulled into left hand lane, that is when Troopers believe they started to race. Then authorities say, that bike drifted back into the right lane and collided with the first bike.

Christopher Hunt of Jacksonville and Jonathon Thompson of Richlands were both charged with DWI, Reckless Driving and Speed Competition. Lawmen say one of the cyclist was airlifted to Vidant Medical Center, the other to Onslow Memorial Hospital. Both men had non-life threatening injuries.

The accident is still under investigation.
