Who usually is at fault when it comes to accidents involving drivers and bicyclists or pedestrians in Beaufort County? You might be surprised by the facts.

A 63-year-old man died in Goldsboro around 7 p.m. Saturday when two cars struck him.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol said Joel Smith was bent over, facing away from traffic on Dollard Town Road, when a car first struck him. Almost immediately, a second car struck him. Authorities do not know why Smith was bent over or was in the road.

Troopers said neither driver will face charges.

Smith was part of his church’s outreach group, and was going door-to-door to talk to people, according to TV station WRAL.
