On January 22, 2021, shortly after 1:00 p.m., Louisiana State Police Troop I was notified of a two-vehicle fatality crash involving a motorcycle on Louisiana Highway 95 at General Lane in Acadia Parish. The crash claimed the life of 21-year-old Brent Allen Miller of Lafayette.

The initial investigation revealed Miller was operating a 2020 Harley-Davidson motorcycle south on La 95. At the same time a northbound 2017 Chevrolet Suburban, driven by 28-year-old Meredith Breaux of Rayne, turned left onto General Lane in front of Miller causing the motorcycle to strike the Suburban.

Despite wearing a DOT approved helmet, Miller suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Breaux was properly restrained and was not injured.

Impairment is not suspected and the crash remains under investigation.
