BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Louisiana State Police said a 35-year-old man died when he crashed his motorcycle Tuesday night.

The victim was identified as Kevin Thibodeaux of Baton Rouge.

The wreck happened on LA 73 (Old Jefferson Highway) near LA 948 (Highland Road) in East Baton Rouge Parish just before 9 p.m.

Troopers said Thibodeaux was headed north on Old Jefferson when his Suzuki motorcycle went off the road in a curve, slid across a concrete driveway and hit a curb.

They said he was pronounced dead at the scene by the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office.

The cause of the accident is still being investigated, but impairment is not believed to have been a factor.
