Motorcyclist dies in head-on collision, two others hospitalized
By GLEN BAITY
A Lexington motorcyclist was killed Friday evening after he collided head-on with another motorcycle on N.C. Highway 150.
Emergency responders were dispatched to the scene at 7:03 p.m. According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, Timothy Ray Smith, 31, of North N.C. Highway 150, was traveling north on that road when he tried to pass another northbound vehicle in a no-passing zone around the Shawnee Drive area in Reeds.
As he was passing, his motorcycle collided with a second motorcycle, which was heading south, driven by Clark Wayne Cable, 46, of Swicegood Road, Linwood. His wife, Michelle Cable, 45, was on the motorcycle as well.
All three were ejected from their vehicles. Smith was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Both the Cables were transported to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, but their conditions were not available at press time.
Alcohol is not presently suspected as a factor in the wreck, a Highway Patrol spokesman said.
