Moped Crash Turns Deadly

Days after a fiery accident involving a moped, the rider dies from his injuries. 

As News 13 reported, Adam Jackson was hit by a car on Spartanburg Highway last Wednesday. Troopers told News 13 the driver was traveling 80 miles per hour. The impact sent Jackson's moped off the the highway and into the G.E. parking lot where it hit a parked vehicle and started a fire. 

Melisa Smith says her son will be always be remembered for his caring spirit. "No matter how many children you have, it's a piece of your heart. He was my first born son and a beacon to all the others and now he's gone," says Smith.

At this time, Troopers have not filed charges against the driver that hit Jackson.
