ATV Crash Kills Minor in Red River Parish

 On July 31, 2013, at 1:28 a.m., Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop G responded to a single vehicle fatal crash on Doc Martin Road east of Louisiana Highway 507.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2004 Yamaha ATV 4-Wheeler, driven by 16-year-old Dakotta Huckabay of Coushatta, was traveling east on Doc Martin Road when it entered a curve to the left and traveled off the right side of the road. The Yamaha struck a dirt embankment and overturned. 

Huckabay was not wearing a helmet and suffered fatal injuries. Huckabay was pronounced dead on scene by the Red River Parish Coroner’s office.   

Alcohol use is not suspected. A toxicology sample was taken and submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation. 

The Louisiana State Police would like to encourage everyone that rides an ATV to always wear the proper safety equipment, travel at safe speeds and only ride on designated trails. It is dangerous and illegal to operate off road vehicles (i.e. three wheelers, four wheelers, and other all terrain vehicles) on any public roadways in this state.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
