A motorcyclist was killed in a 2-vehicle accident in Acadia Parish on Sept. 25. The fatal accident was the result of a collision between the motorcycle and an SUV.
According to Louisiana State Police, the motorcyclist, a 54-year-old Scott man, was headed south on his 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle on LA Highway 343, south of LA Highway 98, when the car accident occurred. A 2002 Mitsubishi Montero, driven by a woman from Scott, traveling the opposite direction made a left turn in front of the motorcycle, causing the motorcycle to crash into the right rear side of the SUV. The motorcycle rolled on its side, slid off the road and fell into a ditch. The Scott man was thrown from the bike.
