Two dead in Lafourche Parish motorcycle crash

Valentine, LA- Shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday evening, a 51-year old Larose man and a 48-year old Larose woman were killed on LA 308 after a motorcycle failed to negotiate a curve and struck a utility pole.

The investigation revealed that a 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling south on LA 308, near Emile Drive, in Lafourche Parish. The motorcycle was being driven by Scott Faulk, (age 51) of Larose.

The motorcycle failed to negotiate a left curve in the roadway. The Harley traveled off the right side of the roadway, where it struck a utility pole and ejected both occupants.

The rear passenger on the Harley was Dawn Mackey, (age 48) also of Larose.

Faulk and Mackey, who were both wearing US D.O.T. helmets, were pronounced dead at the scene by the Lafourche Parish Coroner’s Office.

Alcohol use is unknown at this time and routine toxicology tests are pending. This crash remains under investigation.
