DEPUTIES RESPOND TO FATAL MOTORCYCLE CRASH

On Tuesday, November 1, 2016 Jean P. Rohrer was traveling on Fisher Road near CC Road off of Highway 25 South at a high rate of speed.  According to a witness the motorcycle accelerated and passed her.  As she continued on Fisher Road she saw the motorcycle in the ditch.  It appears that the driver of the motorcycle lost control and crashed.  Jean P. Rohrer was pronounced dead by the Washington Parish Coroner’s Office. 

 

Sheriff Seal said Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars. When motorcycles crash, their riders lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle, so they're more likely to be injured or killed. The federal government estimates that per mile traveled in 2014, the number of deaths on motorcycles was over 27 times the number in cars.  Speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes.  We wish to express our heartfelt sympathy to the family of Mr. Rohrer.”
