Second Person Dead In Lenoir County Motorcycle Crash

A second person has died after troopers say an SUV ran over a motorcyclist in Lenoir County just after midnight Thursday.

State troopers say Jerry Jarman was killed early this morning when his motorcycle was run over by the SUV from behind.

The accident happened around 12:15 a.m. at the intersection of Highways 11 and 55, south of Kinston. Troopers say the Deep Run man was at the stoplight at Jacksons Store, and he was either stopped or just starting to get to speed when the vehicle struck him from behind. The 24-year-old man died at the scene.

Three people were in the other vehicle. They were thrown from the vehicle and taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Troopers say one of the people in the SUV died several hours later at PCMH. They are not sure whether that person was the driver or a passenger.

The Highway Patrol plans to reconstruct the accident Friday morning.

    Seriously. Can we just focus on the loss of a good friend, brother, and son. There is no need for arguing about something of this nature. Whether you knew Jerry or the people in the van, have some sympathy. I have never seen such heartless comments, or disgusting posts in my life. Grow up, people!

    I was really touched by what a lot of you had said about Jerry and everything you said was true, Jerry was the best. Some of you need to remember that Jerry's family and friends are viewing all of these comments and the last thing that any of us want to see is arguing. This is where you can write and leave messages about what Jerry meant to you and where you can tell his family how sorry you are. It is truly disrespectful so please out of respect stop arguing. Jerry you will truly be missed I am so happy that I got to know someone like you. I have known Jerry since elementary school and he was one of kind. He was the kindest person with a genuine heart. He would have done anything for anyone. What a special person Jerry was. We will all carry Jerry in our hearts.

    I think everyone involved in this accident has lost. The lost lives are the greatest tragedy; the survivors will never have a normal life again. The family members will never have a normal life again and no matter what any of these people did or didn't do their contributions to life are now over or diminished. Accidents do happen but personal responsibility needs to happen every time we do anything that can endanger ourselves or others. The loss of life in this manner can and will never make sense. I see the signs for bicycles that read "Share the Road"; maybe we need one that says, "Think While on the Road". One last thing, until NC gets tougher on DUI's we won't see a decrease in drunk driving fatalities in our state. Get tough NC!
