Gastonia Woman Charged With Misdemeanor Death By Vehicle In Death Of Motorcyclist

A seriously injured motorcycle accident victim in Charlotte, North Carolina succumbed to his injured and died a day following this tragic accident. Retired USCG Master Chief Petty Officer Lyle Atwood died a day after being hit while riding his motorcycle on East Independence Boulevard. According to police, traffic on East Independence was slowing due to a disabled vehicle. A sheriff’s car was behind the disabled vehicle with its blue lights activated so as to alert drivers to slow down. As Amanda Augello tried to slow her vehicle, she swerved to the right, sideswiped Davenport on his motorcycle, and then overcorrect to the left, causing her SUV to flip.

The posted speed limit in that area is 55mph. Augello left 114 feet of skid marks in the roadway before striking Davenport, and then she traveled another 105 feet before coming to a final rest, upside down in her flipped SUV, indicating that speed may have been a factor. The accident remains under investigation by Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Major Crash Investigation Unit.

Augello has subsequently been charged with Misdemeanor Death by Vehicle.
