Amite Man Killed in Go-Kart Crash

Saturday (March 2, 2024) afternoon , shortly before 2:00 p.m., Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L began investigating a fatal crash on LA Hwy 16 near Leonard Chapel Road in St. Helena Parish. The crash claimed the life of 38-year-old Timothy Larkin of Amite.

The initial investigation revealed the crash occurred as Larkin was eastbound on LA Hwy 16 on a go-kart. For reasons still under investigation, the go-kart traveled off of the roadway and struck a sign.

Larkin sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash. He was transported to a local hospital before he ultimately succumbed to his injuries. This crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Police reminds the public that the use of go-karts, ATVs, and UTVs on roadways is illegal unless directly related to farming or other duties outlined by Louisiana Revised Statue 32:299. The law can be found by following this link: https://www.legis.la.gov/Legis/Law.aspx?d=88237.
