A Morgan City man lost his life on Sunday afternoon after a motorcycle crash.
Deputies say it happened at around 2 pm on Four Mile Bayou Road. When responders came to the scene, they determined that Trenton Helflin (25) of Morgan City failed to negotiate a curve, which caused him to hit a pole and land in a waterway. Helflin was ejected from his motorcycle, and was pronounced dead on the scene due to his injuries.
The initial investigation suggested alcohol was not a factor in the crash. The investigation is still ongoing.
