68-year-old, Charles W. Leidner, of Vandalia, was turning his motorcycle around on County Road 700N, a gravel road 5 miles southwest of Shobonier, when he lost control of his motorcycle at a slow speed. Leidner veered into the grass where his motorcycle turned over. 67 year-old, Lana D. Leidner, of Vandalia, was turning her moped into a driveway to get help for Charles Leidner, when she lost control of her moped in the loose gravel. The moped overturned and Leidner sustained injuries to her left leg.
