Duhon was wearing a DOT approved helmet, but suffered critical injuries. He was transported to a local hospital where he later died.
Gonzalez and Roque-Valverde were both wearing seat belts and were not injured. Gonzalez and Roque-Valverde both submitted to a chemical breath test and were found not to be impaired. Toxicology samples were taken from Duhon and submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
This crash remains under investigation.
