HOUMA - State police say a 33-year-old Houma resident has died, after crashing his motorcycle along LA 660.

Investigators say Robb Martinez was traveling southbound Saturday when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road.

Martinez ran off the road and fell off the vehicle, before hitting a utility pole.

He was taken to Terrebonne General Hospital where he later died.

Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the crash, but troopers say speeding and a lack of riding knowledge may have contributed to Martinez's death.

The cause remains under investigation.
