MARRERO, La. (AP) - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office says a 21-year-old died when his motorcycle hit a pickup truck, reportedly while he was riding fast on the rear wheel.
Investigators say Renis Waters III, of Westwego, died Thursday morning.
Witnesses told deputies that Waters was riding fast on his rear tire when his Honda motorcycle hit the truck, which was turning left from Nicholson Place at its T intersection onto 4th Street. The motorcycle hit the driver's side of the truck.
The sheriff's office says investigators will discuss the case with parish prosecutors before deciding whether to bring any charges against the pickup's driver.
WWL-AM reports that it's the sixth fatal motorcycle wreck in a week in the New Orleans metro area.
