Lexington man surrenders in hit and run death

LEXINGTON, NC (AP) — A 20-year-old man has surrendered to authorities in a hit-and-run death of a disabled man on a bicycle.

Kenneth Reece Wright Jr., of Thomasville is charged with felony hit and run resulting in serious injury or death. Wright also is charged with failure to display a license plate, driving without an inspection, operating a vehicle without insurance and failure to report an accident.

He is in the Davidson County jail awaiting a Nov. 30 hearing. It was unclear if he has a lawyer.

Forty-five-year-old Richard Clay Wise of Davidson County was hit Tuesday night as he rode on Old N.C. Highway 109. He died at Thomasville Medical Center.

Trooper T.L. Gillispie says Wright turned himself in about two hours after his vehicle was found by authorities Wednesday afternoon.
