WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A man involved in a fatal crash in Wilmington Sunday night on Carolina Beach Road that killed a man on a motorcycle is charged with DWI.
The accident happened just before 8 p.m. Sunday near the Pirate’s Table Seafood Restaurant.
Wilmington Police say Augusto Rosales Valera is charged with DWI and driving with a revoked license after his truck crashed into a Harley, killing the driver.
The man on the motorcycle, Paul Raymond Crutchfield, died at the scene.
Police seized Valera’s truck, since he’d been driving with a suspended license.
Police also say Crutchfield, the man killed, was speeding before the accident.
Wilmington Police Department’s Traffic Unit will reconstruct the crash to determine if any other factors may have contributed to the crash.
