The Louisiana State Police are still confounded by what could have caused a recent accident in Metairie. After culling through witness statements, troopers have eliminated several factors such as speed and impairment as the cause. To be thorough, they have now decided to bring in a mechanic to determine if the scooter the woman was driving at the time of the fatal accident suffered some sort of mechanical failure.
The woman was driving the 2009 Citycom 300i scooter on the flyover ramp that leads from Causeway Boulevard south onto Interstate 10 east. For an as yet and still unknown reason, the woman ended up colliding with the right side of the ramp. When she did, she was thrown over the side and landed on Interstate 10 below.
