— The N.C. Highway Patrol charged Anas Dahabi, 25, with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle in the wreck that shut down Interstate 40 Tuesday afternoon and claimed the life of a soldier stationed at Fort Bragg.

Dahabi was driving his Volkswagen Jetta, troopers said, when he sideswiped a motocycle being ridden by Harold Boyd III, 36, of 4633 Morning Star Lane in Hope Mills.

Boyd died as a result of the injuries he sustained.

A highway patrol spokesman said two other vehicles were involved in the wreck. No one else was injured.
