WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say a moped driver hurt in a crash Sunday morning has died from his injuries.

Police say Lindsay A. Mathis, 26, hit a pick-up truck in the 1000 block of N. 3rd St. around 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

Investigators say Mathis failed to see before changing lanes and hitting the truck. The investigation showed Mathis was wearing a DOT-approved helmet, but that it was not properly secured and came off during the crash.

This is the ninth motor vehicle fatality in Wilmington this year, police say.

NC agency approves health plans for exchange

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013


RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina insurance regulators have approved health plans that will be available to residents under the federal health care law, but aren’t releasing details.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports Wednesday that plans approved by the state Department of Insurance await federal certification. The US Department of Health and Human Services is expected to decide in September which insurance plans can be offered in North Carolina through an online marketplace set to debut in October.

Meanwhile, rates, deductibles and other details remain sealed as corporate trade secrets under state law.

The state agency says coverage will vary by county. Only Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina plans to offer coverage statewide.

Three insurance companies filed more than 60 plans. State regulators won’t say how many they approved.
