MARKSVILLE, La. (AP) - Authorities say a 61-year-old Pineville man died when his motorcycle was struck by a car in Avoyelles Parish.

The accident happened around 5:35 p.m. Sunday on Louisiana Highway 107 north of Marksville.

Master Trooper Scott Moreau says a car driven by 50-year-old David C. O’Quinn, of Marksville, pulled from a side road in the path of Paul McKeithen’s motorcycle.

Moreau said O’Quinn was wearing his seat belt and was not injured. He was issued a ticket for failure to yield from a stop sign.

Troopers say McKeithen was wearing a helmet and was ejected from his Harley during the crash. He was taken to Rapides Regional Trauma Center where he was pronounced dead.

The crash remains under investigation.
