A Lumberton man is charged in a weekend crash that killed a young man on a motorcycle.

Ricky Locklear, 50, is charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle and failure to yield the right away in a crash Sunday afternoon that claimed the life of 22-year-old Tevin Thompson, according to Trooper J.L. Morton with North Carolina Highway Patrol.

Morton said Locklear was making a left turn onto a private driveway on Norment Road in Lumberton when he crashed into Thompson’s motorcycle.
