An Ocean Isle Beach man was killed Thursday morning when a motorist failed to see him in the lane in front of her and struck his moped from behind, an official said.

Glenn Edward Shepard, 57, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 7:14 a.m. crash on Beach Drive near Frank Street in Ocean Isle Beach, according to N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper T. Chavis.

According to Chavis, Blair Whitney Anderson, 19, of Ocean Isle Beach was eastbound on Beach Drive on her way to community college when her Ford Taurus struck the eastbound Shepard who was in the far right of the same lane.

Chavis said Anderson stated the sun was in her eyes and she didn't see Shepard. At the time of the accident, Anderson was driving 40 mph in the 45 mph zone, Chavis said.

Per North Carolina law, Anderson was taken from the scene for a blood draw to determine if she was impaired, then appeared before a magistrate on a charge of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle. Anderson posted a bond and was released, Chavis said.

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Vespa. maybe I'm italian or french or something at hear, or I watched that damn Fooly Cooly cartoon on adultswim WAY too much (Ride on shooting star!).
Um, anyways, there is no chance in hell I can afford a brand new one of anything, be it vespa or honda or eagle or whatever. BUT if anyone has any info on used ones, where to get good ones, how much to expect to pay, how to paint one bubble gum pink, etc. I'd much appreciate it.
Thanks much!
