Wake cyclist hit, killed near Lillington

A Wake County man was killed Thursday morning when his bicycle was hit from behind on a rural road in Harnett County.

Daryl Dwanyne Webster, 66, was riding northbound on Christian Light Road, just north of the Lillington town limits, when he was hit by a Kia sport utility vehicle at about 8 a.m., according to the State Highway Patrol. Webster, who lived on Bowling Road south of Fuquay-Varina, was thrown from his bike.

The Highway Patrol says the driver of the Kia, Edward Shane Yarbrough, failed to slow down before the collision. Yarbrough, 39, who lives on Fletcher Tutor Road in northern Harnett County, was charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle, failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision and driving while his license was revoked.
