On Sunday, February 7, 2010, a 25 year veteran of the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office was killed while escorting a Mardi Gras float by motorcycle. The accident occurred when a car made an illegal left turn in front of the float and hit the deputy’s motorcycle as it was passing the float.
During this Mardi Gras season, Louisiana injury attorney, Scott Andrews, reminds motorists to be on the lookout for vehicles, motorcycles, and pedestrians around Mardi Gras floats. It is best to assume that another vehicle or person is present but hidden, and therefore, to proceed with caution.
