Woman charged after car, motorcycle collide
A woman faces a driving-while-impaired charge after her car struck a motorcycle last Sunday in Clayton.
Police say Rebecca Jean Mota, 42, of Clayton and Phillip Della Camera, 56, of Selma were both eastbound on Old Garner Road, with Mota’s car ahead of Camera’s motorcycle. When she entered the intersection with Shotwell Road, Mota tried to make a U-turn, and her car collided with Camera’s motor cycle, which was entering the intersection.
In addition to DWI, police charged Mota with driving while her license was revoked, making an improper turn, failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident and felony serious injury by motor vehicle.
Camera was taken to WakeMed.
