Louisiana State Police troopers say a Scott man died after a two-view crash that happened on Interstate Ten between the Scott and Duson area last night.

State Police Troop I Spokesman Trooper Thomas Gossen says 53-year-old James W. Romero was driving his motorcycle, when for unknown reasons, he rear-ended a vehicle.

Both of the vehicles were traveling in the westbound lanes of I-10 at the time of the crash which was around 7 o'clock Sunday night.

According to Gossen, this is the fifty-ninth death this year after there have been forty-nine crashes.

Officials say they do not know whether or not impairment was a factor on the part of Romero, but the driver of the other vehicle did submit to a breathalyzer test. They found the driver was not impaired.

Romero was declared dead at the scene of the crash, and it's an ongoing investigation. Gossen says Romero was wearing a DOTD approved helmet.
