A 30-year-old Metairie woman died Saturday after she crashed her motorcycle on the highway near Port Allen, the State Police said.

Superintendent Col. Michael D. Edmonson said in a news release Sunday that 30-year-old Lauren Brocato was killed during the single-vehicle wreck.

Brocato was driving her 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle north on La. 1 near the intersection of La. 987-1 when she failed to make it around a curve and instead ran off the side of the road, Edmonson said.

Brocato continued off the right side of the road and hit one of the Old Mississippi River Bridge support columns, he said. Brocato suffered serious injuries and was taken to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead.
