— A motorcyclist was killed Sunday night in a head-on collision, and the other driver was charged in the case Monday, authorities said.

James Arthur Harris, 59, of Fayetteville, was eastbound on McArthur Road at about 8 p.m. Sunday when he collided with a westbound pickup truck near the intersection with Chesapeake Road, authorities said.

The pickup truck crossed the center line before the wreck, authorities said, and the driver, Del Ennis Richards, 57, of Fayetteville, faces charges of misdemeanor death by vehicle and driving left of center.

Alcohol wasn't a factor in the wreck, authorities said.
