— Family members identified a motorcyclist who died in a wreck near Wilson's Mills this week as 50-year-old Mary Ann O'Neal of Goldsboro.

Police said O'Neal was westbound on U.S. Highway 70 in Johnston County Wednesday night when a tractor-trailer tried to pass her. The driver of the truck, whose identity has not yet been released, heard a bump and immediately pulled over, Police Chief Roy Aycock said.

The crash is still under investigation and Aycock said authorities would not decide whether to file any charges until it was complete.
