While patrolling, police discovered numerous vehicles lining the roadway with large groups of individuals walking in the road.

When police were in the area, a Honda motorcycle operated by 22-year-old Steven Gosselin was traveling westbound on Route 11 when he struck 33-year-old Ghaland Nadeau, who was walking in the roadway.
