A Starks man was killed early Sunday morning in a two-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle on Sam Houston Jones Parkway just west of North Perkins Ferry Road in Moss Bluff.
State Police Trooper Derek Senegal said the crash claimed the life of 30-year-old Caleb Jase Hebert.
Senegal said the driver of a 2003 Dodge pickup truck was traveling west on La. 378 when a 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by Hebert and struck the rear of the truck. The impact caused Hebert to be ejected from the motorcycle.
Hebert, who was wearing a DOT-approved helmet at the time of the crash, sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to a Lake Charles hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Impairment on the part of Hebert is suspected, Senegal said.
The driver of the Dodge was properly restrained and not injured. Toxicology samples were obtained and submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
Troop D has investigated 22 fatal crashes resulting in 24 deaths in 2022, Senegal said.
