Raleigh, N.C. — A Garner man died Tuesday when his motorcycle was hit by a car at the intersection of Rock Quarry, South New Hope and Jones Sausage roads, Raleigh police said Wednesday.
Steven William Jones, 43, of the 300 block of Kentucky Drive, was heading west on Rock Quarry Road when his motorcycle was hit by a Toyota traveling in the opposite direction, police said.
