A Scott man was killed late Thursday in Acadia Parish when the motorcycle he was riding crashed into another vehicle, State Police reported.
Troopers say Emile J. Sonnier, 54, was traveling south on La. 343 on a 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle. A 2002 Mitsubishi Montero, driven by 57-year-old Theresa A. Guidry of Scott, was traveling north on La. 343 and made a left turn in front of Sonnier. Sonnier struck the rear right side of the Montero, causing the motorcycle to roll onto its left side, travel off the left side of the roadway and enter a ditch, ejecting Sonnier from the motorcycle. Sonnier was transported to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Guidry was seat belted and did not sustain any injuries from the crash.
Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in the crash, troopers said. Guidry was cited for improper turn and released. The case remains under investigation.
