One is dead after a single vehicle crash in Acadia Parish. On June 17, 2011, at 1:49 p.m., Troop I was notified of a motorcycle in an irrigation canal.
The motorcycle was discovered by a local farmer who then called police. During the investigation troopers gathered evidence indicating that 39-year-old Steven Marx of Jennings, LA, was driving a 2010 Harley Davidson south on LA 97. Marx failed to negotiate a curve, ran off the left side of the road and entered a ditch. After entering the ditch, the motorcycle drove up the ditch embankment and came to rest in an irrigation canal. Marx died at the scene and was pronounced dead by the Acadia Parish Coroner.
Troopers believe this crash occurred on June 14, 2011. This crash remains under investigation.
