GEISMAR, La. (AP) - State police say a Gonzales man was killed when his motorcycle was struck by a pickup on La. Highway 429 in Ascension Parish.

The accident happened around 7:30 Wednesday night.

Trooper Jared Sandifer says 25-year-old Gonzales Justin D. Juul was northbound when his pickup ran off the road, overcorrected and entered the southbound lane hitting a motorcycle driven by 45-year-old Mark Boudreaux.

Sandifer says Boudreaux was pronounced dead at the scene.

He says Juul was placed under arrest and booked into the Ascension Parish jail on charges of careless operation, DWI and vehicular homicide.

It was unclear whether Juul has an attorney.
