Motorcyclist succumbs to injuries in crash Sunday morning
LIVINGSTON PARISH- A motorcycle crash in Livingston resulted in the death of 65-year-old Richard Scott of Covington Sunday.
The crash occurred as Scott was traveling westbound on LA Hwy 22 on a 2003 Harley Davidson Fat Boy Sunday morning, according to a Louisiana State Police news release.
Scott struggled with a curve and traveled off the roadway, striking a ditch that ejected him from the motorcycle, authorities say.
Despite the DOT approved helmet that the motorcyclist was wearing, he sustained serious injuries. He was transported from the scene to a local hospital for treatment.
Authorities were notified Scott succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday, but impairment is unknown at this time.
A toxicology sample was obtained from Scott for analysis and the investigation is ongoing.
