Assumption Parish, LA (March 28, 2021) – A teenager lost their life following a two-vehicle collision on Saturday evening in Assumption Parish. At around 8 p.m., on March 27, emergency crews were requested at the scene of a traffic-related incident on Pleasant Lane.

Reports show that a 15-year-old male was riding a 2020 Yamaha ATV east on Pleasant Lane when it collided with a 2006 Kawasaki motorcycle. The impact of the crash caused the ATV rider to be ejected from his vehicle.

The victim was transported to a hospital in the Donaldsonville area. He was then transported to a hospital in Baton Rouge where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The rider of the motorcycle was not injured in the accident. At this time, authorities with the Louisiana State Police with Troop B are investigating the crash.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the teen who lost his life in this accident.

Fatal Car Accidents in Louisiana

Assumption Parish, LA – Teen Killed in ATV Crash with Motorcycle on Pleasant LaneTens of thousands of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Louisiana each year. These accidents force victims into area hospitals where they often undergo extensive medical treatment. Numerous victims have to go through long-term treatment, like therapy, rehabilitation, and more. Although we like to believe that victims are able to fully recover from their injuries, that is not always the case. In fact, thousands of people are left with permanently disabling conditions from their injuries. More than 600 people end up losing their lives in traffic-related collisions.

When victims lose their lives in accidents, they often leave surviving relatives to deal with the overwhelming consequences. Not only are families forced to deal with the mental and emotional pain and suffering of losing a loved one, but they often face overwhelming financial burdens from funeral costs, burial expenses, and the loss of income. Although we can take proactive steps to ensure others sharing the roads with us are safe, there is no guarantee that other motorists will take our well-being into consideration. As a result, many people end up injured or lose their lives in accidents due to the negligence of others.
