According to The Neshoba Democrat, the fatal Pennsylvania motorcycle crash occurred on northbound Mississippi 21 near Coy United Methodist Church. It is still unclear what made the motorcyclist veer off the road. It was initially believed the man may have suffered a heart attack, causing the fatal motorcycle crash, but an autopsy showed no evidence of a heart attack. He succumbed to severe injuries sustained in the Pennsylvania motorcycle crash.

Poorly maintained roadways cause many solo motorcycle accidents because motorcycles are vulnerable to dangerous conditions such as wet surfaces, uneven pavement and potholes.
