Deputies say someone driving a pickup truck was heading south on U.S. 51 when they slowed down to turn into a driveway.

The driver of a motorcycle failed to yield, and rear-ended the truck.

The driver of the truck was not injured, but the driver of the motorcycle sustained major injuries, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

An investigation is currently ongoing.
