Man On Motorcycle Dies After Being Hit From Behind

One person died and another was seriously injured after a collision on NC Highway 68 Sunday that involved a motorcycle and a truck.

Around 12:20 p,m., Jody Edward Payne was riding a 2005 Harley Davidson Motorcycle traveling south near Oak Ridge when he stopped to turn left at the Old Mill of Guilford. A GMC truck driven by Nolan Scott Cole failed to stop in time, striking the Harley from behind, killing Payne and seriously injuring the passenger, 49-year-old Jacquelyn Hamilton Sullivan. Both Payne and Sullivan live in Greensboro. Cole was uninjured.

A release from the State Highway Patrol says Cole was charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle. The issue of Cole being distracted is under investigation. Alcohol isn't believed to be a factor.
