FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Police say a woman involved in a deadly Fayetteville motorcycle crash last weekend is facing a new charge.

Jasmyne Russell-Dicker, 24, of Sanford was already charged in the March 10 crash that happened just after 3:10 a.m. near the intersection of Yadkin near Horeshoe roads.

Police identified the motorcyclist as 22-year-old Patrick McDill, a Fort Bragg soldier.  

McDill was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, but later died. 

Russell-Dicker was originally charged with driving while impaired and unsafe movement causing injury to a motorcyclist.

On Friday, police announced she was also charged with felony death by motor vehicle.

Russell-Dicker was processed at the Cumberland County Detention Center. She was later freed on a $15,000 secured bond. 

Another deadly crash happened in Fayetteville around 7:30 p.m. that day along Bingham Drive at Lakeridge Drive. The motorcyclist, a man, died at the scene and charges were filed Friday in that case.

Cumberland County has the highest amount of motorcycle crashes compared to other counties this size. The most recent numbers show 966 crashes over a four-year period.

But according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, Cumberland County also has the most registered motorcycles compared to other counties. There are roughly 6,500 registered motorcycles.
