Randy Dale Gainey, 58, of Sherrills Ford, NC, died at the scene, according to troopers. He was not wearing a helmet.
The FHP says the accident happened about 9:50 p.m. on Shoal Line Boulevard near Erin Road. Troopers said Mr. Gainey was driving his 2003 American motorcycle east on Shoal Line when he failed to negotiate a curve. Mr. Gainey braked as the motorcycle traveled east across the paved apron toward Erin Road. The motorcycle overturned onto the grass shoulder and collided with a street sign. Troopers said the motorcycle continued across the sidewalk and overturned again, ejecting Mr. Gainey. Troopers said it is unclear why he failed to negotiate the curve.
