According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, the wreck occurred around 4:40 p.m. on I-85 near Exit 68. Troopers said a motorcyclist pulled off onto the shoulder of the road due to rain. 

The motorcyclist was then struck in the back and shoulder area by a car, because the driver could not see due to the inclement weather.

No one else was injured in the wreck. 

There will be no charges filed in the crash, Highway Patrol said.
