motorcyclist killed in a Saturday wreck on N.C. Hwy 321 near Blowing Rock may
have been having bike trouble, witnesses say.
33-year-old Christiana Parker
Hendrix of Charlotte was pronounced dead at the scene after being ejected from
her 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle. At approximately 6:15 p.m. Hendrix was
traveling north on 321 towards Falcon Crest when troopers say she lost control,
went left of center and collided with a southbound 2001 Chevrolet van. The
driver, Sandra Morgan of Lancaster, South Carolina, and the three passengers of
the van were not injured.
While the accident did occur in the construction
area, the collision happened on a straight section of the road on a clear day.
Witnesses say Hendrix appeared to be struggling with her bike. No physical
evidence was found on the roadway, however, to corroborate that theory. As of
yet, an official cause has not been determined.
