Motorcycle crash leaves two injured

State Police say an accident in LeBleu Settlement involving a motorcyclist could have been much worse.

State Troopers say the motorcycle was heading west bound as an east bound driver stopped to make a left turn.

Troopers say another eastbound vehicle traveling behind was not paying attention and swerved to avoid hitting the stopped vehicle going into the opposing lane of traffic and hitting the motorcycle.

The motorcycle's driver and passenger both received moderate injuries.

The driver of the vehicle was cited for careless operation and expired driver's license.
