A Baton Rouge woman was killed Wednesday morning after a driver turned and collided with her motorcycle at the intersection of Siegen Lane and Perkins Road.
State Police spokesman Senior Trooper Bryan Lee said the crash occurred around 6 a.m.
Evelyn Carrasco, 40, was killed in the crash.
She was traveling westbound at the same time Folakemi Stinson, 27, was driving his car eastbound on Siegen Lane, Lee said in a news release. Stinson then failed to yield and turned left into the path of Carrasco's motorcycle.
Carrasco was ejected from her motorcycle and pronounced dead on the scene, Lee said. Stinson was properly restrained and was not injured. He was cited for failure to yield. Additional charges are pending, according to police.
Lee said impairment is not suspected, but a toxicology sample was taken from both drivers for analysis.
