Fayetteville, N.C. — A motorcycle rider was critically injured Sunday when she failed to negotiate a turn at an intersection, Fayetteville police said.

Jackson’s motorcycle was hit by a 2008 BMW driven by Walter Benton, 49, of Raeford. She was flown to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, where she remained in critical condition Monday.
Benton was not seriously injured, police said.
