One Dead After Motorcycles, Car Collide On I-485
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — One man is dead after two people on motorcycles crashed with a car in southwestern Mecklenburg County.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol tells local media outlets the crash happened at around 11 p.m. Wednesday on Interstate 485.
Troopers say a 30-year-old man named Yoeun Yut was riding one of the motorcycles and was killed. The other motorcycle rider was taken to a hospital, but officials said that person is expected to be OK.
Authorities are still investigating the cause of the crash, but troopers believe speed was a factor. The road was shut down for a short time but has since reopened.
