A motorcyclist died Saturday of injuries he suffered during a collision with a vehicle making a U-turn in the 9300 block of Moores Chapel Road Friday in West Charlotte, police said.
Andrew Jackson Nalbone was pronounced dead at Carolinas Medical Center, where he was transported by Medic after the wreck, officials said. A passenger on the motorcycle, Karen Jane Garver, was also seriously injured and transported to a hospital, but no update was available on her condition.
The accident occurred Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Moores Chapel Road and Kendall Drive when a Buick Rendezvous driven by Katie Ingram Weldon slowed to make a U-turn, officials said. Jackson’s Harley-Davidson Sportsmaster was traveling behind the Buick and collided with the driver’s door, police said.
The Major Crash Investigation Unit is investigating. Alcohol use and excessive speed do not appear to be factors in this collision, officials said. Mark Price
