Ville Platte man dies in motorcycle crash

Updated:

Evangeline Parish- Yesterday, Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop I investigated a fatal crash on LA Highway 3187 near Red Lick Road which has claimed the life of a Ville Platte man.

On February 16, 2014, at 6:10 p.m. 60-year-old Terry Thrasher of Ville Plate was operating a 2001 Honda three-wheel motorcycle north on LA 3187.  For reasons still under investigation Thrasher crossed the centerline, traveled off the left side of the road and struck a tree.  Thrasher, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from the vehicle.  He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Evangeline Parish Coroner. 

It is unknown if impairment was a factor in this crash; however, routine toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted to the State Police Crime Lab for analysis. 

This crash remains under investigation.

Troopers remind motorcycle operators that anyone riding on a motorcycle is required to wear a helmet.  The Louisiana State Police website, LSP.ORG, provides information on motorcycle safety classes.  The classes range from basic rider course to the advanced rider course.  Anyone interested in attending motorcycle safety courses can go to http://lsp.org/motorcycle.html for more information.
