Unsafe Truck Driver? Tractor-Trailer Driver Cited for Death of Motorcyclist in Charlotte, North Carolina

Monday night, May 16, 2022, police responded to a deadly collision involving a motorcycle and tractor-trailer at the intersection of Rozzelles Ferry Road and Lawton Road in Charlotte, North Carolina. The motorcyclist was dead at the scene and the passenger was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The tractor-trailer driver, Rolando Reimundez Pedre, 28, was not hurt in the crash.

Both the motorcyclist and passenger were thrown from the motorcycle. They were both wearing helmets at the time of the crash.
