Paul Stephenson (, 10-01-13) was enjoying a ride on his motorcycle heading down North Sharon Amity Road in Charlotte, NC when his life came to an abrupt and tragic end.

A Lincoln Town Car made a left-hand turn jutting out in front of Mr. Stephenson’s motor bike. The wreck occurred at the intersection of North Sharon Amity Road and Castleton Road. Mr. Stephenson was only 51 years old.

Our deepest conoldences go out to the Stephenson family. Losing someone you love is always difficult, but the pain is made even worse when the loved one is taken from you in a sudden and unexpected manner. It also has to be infuriating to think about the possibility that this tragic crash could have been avoided, if only the driver of the Town Car exercised more caution. 

The driver of the Town Car was arrested and charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle and driving while his license was revoked.
