A 37-year-old Baker man died Wednesday when his motorcycle hit an oncoming pickup truck on Scenic Highway, Baton Rouge police said.
Ethin Davis was heading north on the 1200 block of Scenic Highway about 11:30 a.m. when a 65-year-old woman driving a Ford Expedition turned in front of him, Cpl. Don Coppola, a Baton Rouge police spokesman, said in a new release. Davis, 3625 Charry Drive, was taken to an area hospital, where he died, Coppola said.
The driver of the Expedition, who was not identified in the news release, did not suffer any injuries, Coppola said. She was cited for failure to yield on a left turn.
Investigators do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, Coppola said.
