Victim identified in fatal motorcycle crash in Shreveport

Posted: Updated:

Shreveport Police have identified a Mississippi man who lost his life following a motorcycle crash last Friday afternoon in south Shreveport.

Just after 3:30 p.m. on Friday July 18, members of the Shreveport Police Department's patrol division responded to a multiple vehicle crash occurring near the intersection of Flournoy-Lucas Road near the entrance to the Twelve Oaks subdivision. Upon officer's arrival at the scene, it was learned Edwin J. Bergeron, 49, of Vicksburg Mississippi, died following a collision between his 2002 Honda motorcycle and a 2010 Scion TC.

Preliminary information suggested Bergeron was traveling east bound on Flournoy-Lucas Road, at which time the 16 year old driver of the Scion, reportedly pulled out of the Twelve Oaks Subdivision into the path of the motorcycle. Following the initial collision, Bergeron was thrown from the motorcycle striking a 2011 Lexus SUV driven by Summer Smith. 36, of Shreveport. 

Charges against the driver of the Scion are pending the outcome of the investigation which remains underway by Shreveport Police Crash Investigators.
