LAFOURCHE- A Thibodaux man is dead after a car crash in Lafourche Parish.

It happened just before 9 a.m. Monday on LA-20 west of Appletree Drive.

Louis Ledet Jr., 43, was killed when his motorcycle was rear-ended by a car driven by 30-year-old Toni Aucoin. Upon impact, Ledet was ejected from the motorcycle.

According to a witness behind Aucoin, Ledet was not operating his motorcycle at a constant speed. It appeared the motorcycle was speeding up and slowing down. It is unknown if this was due to driver error or mechanical problems.

Aucoin was wearing her seat belt and received minor injuries. Ledet was pronounced dead at the scene. Ledet was not wearing an approved DOT helmet.

Alcohol and/or drug involvement is not suspected in the crash.

Charges are pending in the crash as Troopers continue their investigation.
