— The N.C. Highway Patrol said Wednesday that the motorcyclist involved in a four-vehicle wreck that shut down Interstate 40 Tuesday afternoon was a soldier stationed at Fort Bragg.

Troopers said Harold Boyd III, 36, of 4633 Morning Star Lane in Hope Mills, died as a result of the injuries he sustained when a car sideswiped his motorcycle on westbound I-40 near Harrison Avenue in Cary. The crash happened just before 3:30 p.m. 

A highway patrol spokesman said that two cars, Boyd's motorcycle and a tractor-trailer were involved in the wreck. No one else was injured.

Trooper C.L. Herring said Anas Dahabi was attempting to change lanes when he hit Boyd. Charges were pending against Dahabi.
