UPDATE: Lafayette Police report that all lanes of Ambassador are now open.

Earlier this afternoon, Lafayette Police reported that they were on the scene of a major vehicle crash involving a motorcycle.

The crash occurred around 3:19 p.m., in the 1600 block of Ambassador Caffery just south of the intersection with Eraste Landry Road. The driver of the motorcycle has been transported to a local hospital, he is listed in critical but stable condition, police say.

The Lafayette Police Department’s Traffic Division was on scene and the investigation is ongoing.

Police had asked motorists to avoid the area while they conduct their investigation; at that time both southbound lanes of Ambassador Caffery were shut down while Traffic Investigators conduct their investigation.

As more information is made available, police say they will provide updates.
