Man Killed In Wednesday Evening Motorcycle Crash

A man was killed in a Wednesday night (June 26) motorcycle crash in Iredell County. The deceased is 65-year-old Scott Alexander Turner of Statesville.

At approximately 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol responded to Shinnville Road near Weathers Creek Road. A 2015 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling north on Shinnville, when the driver lost control, crossed the center line, drove off the left side of the road, struck several mailboxes, and overturned.

The driver, Scott Alexander Turner, was ejected from the motorcycle and passed away as a result of his injuries at the scene. During the on-scene investigation, Shinnville Road was closed in the area for approximately two hours. The initial investigation indicates excessive speed to be the contributing circumstance in the collision.
