Fatal Head-On Motorcycle Accident in Charlotte

Author: Auger Law | September 23rd, 2014

Early Saturday morning, sometime shortly after 5 am, Jorge Jimenez-Feliz was driving a white Dodge Caravan. For some unknown reason, he crossed the double yellow line while driving down North Tyron Street in Charlotte.  When he did that, he ran head-on into Jessie Garza who was driving his 2008 Yamaha motorcycle in the opposite direction.  As a result of that crash, the bike hit another vehicle that had stopped when it saw the collision.

The drivers of both cars were uninjured, however, according to investigators, Garza died at the scene of injuries incurred in the crash.  Jimenez-Feliz has been arrested and charged as a result of the accident, although investigators currently do not believe that alcohol or speed were factors.
