Motorcyclist Killed in Crash in Tangipahoa Parish

Shortly before 9:00 pm, on Wednesday October 31, 2018, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L responded to a fatal crash involving a motorcycle on LA 22 west of Interstate 55 in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 54-year-old Gerald A. East of Springfield.

The initial investigation led Troopers to determine that the crash occurred as East was riding a 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle westbound on LA 22. A 2011 Kia Sorento, driven by 40-year-old Michael Wayne Culotta of Tickfaw, had come to a stop due to congestion ahead of East’s motorcycle. East failed to stop his motorcycle and crashed into the rear of the Sorento.

East sustained severe injuries and was transported to North Oaks Health Systems by Acadian Ambulance. Shortly after arriving at the hospital, East succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash. Culotta was uninjured.
