CONCORD — A motorcyclist was killed Friday, May 1, in a crash involving two vehicles that occurred in Concord on Weddignton Road between Old Harmony and Bennington drives.

The motorcyclist was Timothy Reissig, 55, of Kannapolis.

Reissig was coming over the bend on Weddington Road and crossed the centerline into the oncoming lane. A truck with a utility trailer was in the oncoming lane and was about to make a right turn. The truck driver tried to turn out of the way, the report stated, but Reissig hit the side of the trailer head-on.

He was airlifted by Med Center Air to Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, said Capt. Todd McGhee, but Reissig died that night at 8 p.m.

The captain said that neither driver was speeding and that alcohol was not a factor involved in the crash.
