• Memorial ride held for motorcyclist who died in accident


    LENOIR - A memorial ride was held Saturday to honor Jeremy Scott Brown, who lost his life in a motorcycle accident in May.

    The ride was on the same stretch on Highway 268 that took Brown’s life. The group consisted of 120 motorcycles and over 150 riders.

    All motorcycles had American flags attached to them because Brown was an active member of the Army National Guard. He joined in 2007, and was a staff sergeant. His parents were also involved in the ride, and $400 was raised for them.

    Brown's friend, Wesley Bumgarner, said the group wanted to honor their fallen friend and emphasize safe riding for all motorcyclists.

    Brown enjoyed riding motorcycles and spending time with his family.
