Baton Rouge, La — A Baton Rouge man died last night as the result of a motorcycle crash.
The incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday night.
Nicholas Albano, 66, was traveling in the 13700 block of S. Choctaw on a 2007 Harley Davidson Sportster when he failed to take a curve to the left.
The motorcycle left the roadway and struck a raised concrete barrier, which ejected Albano. He then struck another concrete barrier, leading to major injuries. Albano was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
He wearing a helmet, and both alcohol and speed do not appear to be a factor in this crash.
The investigation by the Traffic Homicide Unit is continuing.
