CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Police are investigating a fatal moped accident that happened in east Charlotte.
Investigators say 23-year-old Matthew Foster was driving his moped on East 7th Street when he ran through the shoulder of the right travel lane, hit a curb and then struck a telephone pole.
Foster was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say speed does not appear to be a factor and they are working to determine if the driver had alcohol in his system. The accident happened on Foster's 23rd birthday.
