Motorcycle crash in Livingston Parish kills Maurepas man

LIVINGSTON — A 51-yr-old was killed in a motorcycle crash on Sunday afternoon in Livingston Parish.

Salvatore Caserta Jr., of Maurepas, was riding his 2016 Indian Scout motorcycle on Hwy. 42 around 1pm when he crashed, according to Louisiana State Police Troopers.

Troopers say Caserta was driving west on Hwy. 42 near Pardue Rd. when he lost control of his motorcycle and went off the roadway. It’s still unclear what caused Caserta to look control, but he was ejected off his motorcycle as a result of the crash.

Despite wearing an DOT approved helmet, Caserta sustained serious injuries in the crash. He was transported to a local hospital where he did not survive his injuries.

As part of the ongoing investigation, a toxicology sample was taken from Caserta and will be submitted for analysis. 

The crash remains under investigation. 

Whether on motorcycle or in a vehicle, drivers should make good decisions while traveling on the roadway. Obeying all traffic control signs and signals, maintaining the speed limit, wearing a seatbelt when riding in a vehicle, and never driving while impaired, fatigued, or distracted can often mean the difference between life and death.
