Charges have been filed in the death of a vacationer from West Virginia who was struck by a vehicle in Kill Devil Hills on June 3.

            Harvey L. Sourbeer, 90, of Point Harbor, has been charged with Misdemeanor Death by Motor Vehicle. He was placed under a $10,000 unsecured bond.

            According to Captain John Towler of the Kill Devil Hills Police Department, ”To be clear, since there’s been some confusion in the public reaction to this incident, Mr. Rawlings was in no way shape or form at fault for what happened. He was crossing the road in properly marked crosswalk. The light was green for him to cross and the light was functioning properly. He had the right of way. Those are the pertinent facts surrounding the circumstances of the collision.”
