DONALDSONVILLE, La (BRPROUD) – Louisiana State Police (LSP) are investigating a fatal hit and run accident that killed a Pierre Part man.
Troopers were called out La Hwy 1 near Fontana Road in Ascension Parish around 5 p.m. on Saturday. Through an investigation, Troopers learned that 31-year-old Cameron James Thibodeaux was traveling southbound on LA Hwy 1 on a 2009 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycle. At the same time, an unknown vehicle was beginning to make a left turn onto LA Hwy 1 from a private driveway when the vehicle turned directly in front of Thibodeaux’s motorcycle.
Thibodeaux ran off the road and hit a barrier. LSP said that the suspect stopped for a moment before driving off.
Thibodeaux was wearing an approved DOT helmet but his injuries from the crash were serious. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
“Troopers believe that the unidentified vehicle may be a green four-door sedan with a possible primer-type paint on the hood and the trunk area,” LSP said in an official press release.
This crash remains under investigation. LSP asks that anyone with any information regarding this crash contact Louisiana State Police Troop A at (225) 754-8500 or their local law enforcement agency.
