Camp Lejeune Marine killed in motorcycle accident
A Camp Lejeune Marine was killed in a motorcycle accident Saturday evening, Highway Patrol Troopers said.
The accident happened along Old Folkstone Road near Scuba Drive in Sneads Ferry around 5:55 p.m., Trooper Adam Hostinsky said.
The motorcyclist, Trevor Richardet, 19, had been traveling east on Old Folkstone Road at a high rate of speed when a pick-up truck pulled out of a driveway in front of him, Hostinsky said.
Richardet could not stop his bike in time, so he laid it down on its side and crashed into the rear end of the truck. He died at the scene, Hostinsky said.
No charges have been filed at this time and troopers say they do not expect any to be filed.
