SNEADS FERRY, N.C. (AP) — A Marine stationed at Camp Lejeune has been charged in a wreck that killed a motorcycle driver.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol told local media that 68-year-old Thomas Eugene Martin of Sneads Ferry died in the crash Monday afternoon.

Troopers say a military truck crossed the center line of a road while trying to avoid traffic that had stopped suddenly. Twenty-one-year-old Steven Crane is charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and driving left of the centerline.

He was released to his military unit.

No one else was hurt.
