Baton Rouge motorcyclist dies in two vehicle crash

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - State Police are investigating a crash that took the life of a Baton Rouge man Monday night.

The two-vehicle crash happened just before 7 p.m. on LA 3246 at Siegen Lane, north of I-10 East in Baton Rouge. A Suzuki motorcycle, driven by 29-year-old Marc Williams, was travelling southbound on Siegen Lane when, at the same time, a vehicle driven by 22-year-old Gladys Dedrick was travelling in the opposite direction in a Honda Civic.

Dedrick moved into the center turn lane in preparation to make a left turn. As the southbound traffic came to a stop due to congestion, Dedrick began to make a left turn between the stopped cars. Williams hit Dedrick's vehicle as she was crossing the right southbound lane.

Williams was ejected from his motorcycle and sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash. He was transported to OLOL hospital where he later died.

Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in the crash, but toxicology samples were taken from both drivers for testing.
