Initial details about the crash say that it happened as 57-year-old John Leblanc was on a motorcycle traveling westbound along Highway 182. Ahead of Leblanc, police believe that an 18-wheeler, also westbound, attempted to make a wide-right turn off the highway. While it did so, authorities report that Leblanc began to pass the 18-wheeler on the right. As the 18-wheeler turned, the truck and the motorcycle collided.

Leblanc apparently sustained serious injuries and was taken to a hospital. Reports say he has since died as a result of those injuries. No one else was said to have been injured due to the crash. Right now, investigations are ongoing. Details suggest that "charges are pending," but further information is required to confirm if that's and what those possible charges would be.
