Just after 4 p.m. a 2016 BMW motorcycle traveling eastbound on Bethlehem Boulevard near North Point Boulevard crossed into the oncoming traffic lane while navigating a curve in the roadway. The motorcycle struck the driver-side rear corner of a Chevrolet Silverado traveling westbound, then struck the front of a Ford F350 truck that was also traveling westbound behind the Silverado.
