MARKSVILLE, Louisiana — A Marksville man died Friday when the motorcycle he was operating collided with a pickup truck.

Louisiana State Police say in a news release that the motorcycle operated by 45-year-old Danny S. Clark of Marksville was riding of the left side of the centerline in the opposing lane of Little River Road in Avoyelles Parish as he passed two vehicles.
