NOPD Investigating Traffic Fatality on I-10

The NOPD is investigating a traffic fatality that occurred this evening (April 2, 2023) on the I-10 near Canal Street that left one person dead.

Preliminary investigation indicates a motorcycle driver was reportedly weaving in and out of traffic-and somehow lost control of his motorcycle and struck the back of the MAP Unit.  The driver was ejected from his bike and landed in the Eastbound lanes.  He was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

NOPD traffic fatality investigators are trying to determine the exact cause of the crash.
