Cyclist Killed in Fatal Crash Near Tickfaw

Early this morning (June 11, 2018), Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L investigated a fatal crash involving a bicycle on LA 1064 near Milton Rd. in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 17-year-old Tremaine Hughes of Ponchatoula.
The initial investigation has led Troopers to determine that a vehicle, driven by 24-year-old William Eugene Burris II of Hammond, struck Hughes' Huffy mountain style bicycle. The bicycle was not equipped with safety lights and Hughes was wearing dark colored clothing.
The impact ejected Hughes from the bicycle. Hughes was not wearing a helmet and sustained severe injuries in the crash. He was transported to North Oaks Health Systems, where he ultimately succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash.
