According to State Police, the preliminary investigation revealed Louque was traveling south on LA 308 on a 2014 Suzuki motorcycle at a high rate of speed. He approached the intersection at the T-Bois Bridge, where traffic was stopped for a red light. For unknown reasons, Louque failed to stop and struck a boat and trailer that was being towed by a 2010 Ford F-250. Randy Dominique, 63, of Gheens was driving the Ford.

Louque was transported to Lady of the Sea Hospital by South Lafourche Ambulance Service, where he was pronounced deceased. He was wearing a DOT approved helmet during the crash. Impairment is unknown at this time, and a standard toxicology report is pending.

Dominique was not injured and was restrained during the crash. He provided a breath sample that showed no alcohol present. This crash remains under investigation and no further information is available at this time, according to police.

Troopers urge drivers to always be aware of motorcyclists around them, and likewise urge motorcyclists to engage in safe riding practices when on our roadways. Motorcyclists should practice safe and responsible operator behavior such as obeying speed limits, wearing a helmet, and never operating their motorcycle under any form of impairment.
