Church Point Motorcyclist Dies in Crash
24-year-old Weston R. Nelams is dead after a crash Tuesday evening on LA Hwy 95 at LA Hwy 365 in Acadia Parish.
La. State Police spokesman Sergeant Jared Sandifer says Nelams' motorcycle was hit after a truck driven by 41-year-old Frankie Guillory of Opelousas struck a stopped truck, driven by 19-year-old Tyler Bergeron of Church Point, which caused Guillory's truck to rotate and crash into the motorcycle. Bergeron was stopped because he was preparing to turn left on LA Hwy 365 when, for unknown reasons, Guillory failed to stop and attempted to steer to the left.
Guillory and Bergeron were wearing seatbelts and were uninjured in the incident.
The investigation continues and charges are pending.
