A 52-year-old man who was riding a lawn mower and caused a crash involving two vehicles on Monday evening has been charged with driving while impaired, North Carolina Highway Patrol troopers said.

Troopers said 52-year-old Perry Weaver was driving the mower along the shoulder of Burkhardt Road at about 8:45 p.m. when he pulled into the roadway and was struck by a vehicle.

The impact threw him from the mower, troopers said, and he was then struck by a second vehicle.

Troopers said Weaver's injuries weren't serious and he wasn't taken to the hospital.

Troopers said it wasn't clear if Weaver was mowing or driving somewhere when the crash happened.
