— A motorcyclist was in critical condition following a crash on Interstate 40 that closed two lanes of the highway Friday morning.

According to the police report, Marquida Racheal Armstrong, of 2503 Avent Ferry Rd. in Raleigh, was driving eastbound on I-40 in the right-center lane when she attempted to change lanes to exit at Hammond Road. Armstrong told police she never saw the motorcyle in the right lane.

Michael Steven White, of 112 Hillcrest Drive in Fuquay-Varina, was thrown from his motorcycle and, a witness said, appeared to hit his head on the curb. 

Armstrong was charged with an unsafe lane change and an inspection violation.
