Traffic was not affected due to the area already being under construction prior to the crash.
After an initial investigation, police determined that LeCompte Jr. continued westbound past the road closure on Drexel and crashed into a concrete barrier that was in place to block traffic flow. He was thrown from the motorcycle and was not wearing a helmet.
Police say speed does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
