Henderson, N.C. — A tractor-trailer driver faces murder charges after a Cary motorcyclist was killed in a hit-and-run wreck on Interstate 85 South in Vance County Thursday evening.
State troopers said that Michael Gray Rigsbee, 38, was driving a Volvo tractor-trailer that struck a 2010 BMW motorcycle ridden by Sean Christopher Newman, 39, near mile marker 220, north of Henderson, around 7 p.m. Troopers said the tractor-trailer did not stop.
Newman, of Cary, lost control of his bike, which struck the median. Troopers said Newman was thrown from the bike and died instantly.
Troopers pulled over the tractor-trailer driven by Rigsbee in Granville County, about 20 miles south of the wreck.
Rigsbee, of 1620 Pope Road in Creedmoor, was charged with second-degree murder, felony hit-and-run, failure to render aid and careless and reckless driving. He was given a $112,000 bond.
Troopers said they interviewed four other witnesses to the wreck.
