Truck Accident Causes Motorcyclist's Death - Truck Accident Lawyers

A truck driven by Stephen Novacic rolled over an embankment, bringing down a tree and a pole attached to wires.  The tree fell on a man, Alan Brocklebank, who was riding his motorcycle.  Mr. Brocklebank was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he was pronounced dead. 

Mr. Novacic has been charged with driving under the influence and involuntary manslaughter in connection with the motorcyclist's death.   Court documents said that he had .265 blood alcohol content on a breath test,  which was over the legal limit.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner said that Mr. Brocklebank died from blunt force trauma.  Mr. Brocklebank drove a bus for PAT (Port Authority).  This accident occurred on Parker Road in Etna.

Novacic drove a truck for Swank Associated Companies.  At the time of the crash, Novacic was driving a truck and pulling a trailer holding equipment.
