Truck kills three after plowing into motorcycle fundraiser

Three people are dead after a pickup truck swerved head-on into a group of motorcycle riders. The motorcyclists were participating in a charity ride to benefit the dance team of Corsicana High School in Navarro County, Texas.

The three victims killed in the accident were Corsicana High School science teacher, Leslie Tahamia McCluney, 34, her 61-year-old father Terry Paul Nelson and 54-year-old real estate agent David Edmond Coley.

The driver of the truck was 54-year-old Will Jack Lindsey, Jr. Lindsey was driving his Ford pickup eastbound on FM709 when he swerved into the westbound lanes, colliding head-on with Coley and Nelson’s motorcycles. McCluney was riding on Nelson’s motorcycle when the accident occurred.

After striking the two motorcycles, Lindsey’s truck overturned, striking two more motorcycles in the process.

What caused Lindsey to swerve into the westbound lanes remains unclear.

More than 30 motorcycles were participating in the 90-mile charity ride when the accident occurred on Saturday morning.
