A motorcycle crash Sunday morning in East Feliciana Parish took the life of a man from St. Bernard Parish, according to State Police.

John Guate, 55, died after he ran off the road about 8:30 a.m. on La. 952 north of La. 10 at Miller Road.

State Police said Guate was driving a 2003 Honda motorcycle northbound on La. 952 when he failed to negotiate a curve to the left.

He ran off the right side of the road, struck a guardrail and was ejected from the motorcycle.

Although he was wearing a safety helmet, he suffered fatal injuries. He died at the scene.

Impairment is not suspected to be a factor, but a toxicology sample will be submitted to the State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
