PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

A motorcyclist is dead after a crash on US-117 in Pender County.

The crash happened just before 8 p.m. Saturday evening.

According to a Sgt. with the State Highway Patrol, Lindsey Mathis was driving his motorcycle southbound on US-117 when he was struck by a pickup truck.

The Sgt. said the driver of the pickup truck was driving northbound on US-117 when he attempted to make a left turn and struck Mathis on his motorcycle.

Mathis was pronounced dead at the scene. Mathis was a well known DJ and singer in Southeastern Carolina, known as DJ Big Daddy. His family said he had also just become a nurse. 

The name of driver of the pickup truck has not been released yet because he is underage. His family tells us the driver was a 15 year old who had just received his permit. 

According to a story WECT did with a Lindsey Mathis in 2013, Mathis' son died in a moped accident in July of 2013. His son, 26-year-old Lindsey "Aaron" Mathis, was hit by a pickup truck. Mathis reportedly didn't see the pickup truck while changing lanes.
