Beauregard Parish – Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop D was notified of a single-vehicle fatal crash on US Hwy 190 just west of Eaves Loop in Beauregard Parish on July 24, 2021, shortly before 9:00 a.m. The crash claimed the life of 38-year-old Cody Wayne Marler of Merryville.

The initial investigation revealed a 2014 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, operated by Marler, was traveling west on US Hwy 190. Marler failed to negotiate a left hand curve, ran off the roadway, and entered a ditch. As a result, Marler was ejected from the motorcycle.

Maler, who was not wearing a DOT approved helmet, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Impairment is unknown, but a toxicology sample was obtained from Marler and submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.

Troopers encourage all riders to take an approved motorcycle safety course. These courses teach safe riding practices and help you apply safe riding strategies that can help reduce your chance of injury should a crash occur.
