LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – A Breaux Bridge man identified as Tucker Huval is dead after a crash that shut down a portion of Willow Street in Lafayette for several hours.

The motorcyclist, who police have only described as a 34-year-old man from Breaux Bridge, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver and passenger of the car were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

“The motorcycle was traveling east on West Willow Street when a red Ford vehicle traveling west on West Willow Street turned left into the path of the motorcycle.  The motorcycle crashed into the vehicle ejecting the rider,” Mouton said.
