Preliminary crash information indicates that a 2019 Harley Davidson Tri-Glide Ultra motorcycle was westbound on Interstate 90 when it slowed down to avoid a large box that had fallen from a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado pickup.

Neither of the male pickup drivers were injured. Charges are pending against both.
