Just after 4 a.m. Tuesday, Louisiana State Police were dispatched to a one-vehicle crash on Middle Road, south of Old Arcadia Road. The wreck claimed the life of 58-year-old Mark Isenhour of Minden.
The initial investigation revealed that a 2002 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, operated by Isenhour, was traveling south on Middle Road when he exited the road and struck a culvert. After impacting the culvert, Isenhour and his passenger were ejected.
Isenhour suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene by the Webster Parish Coroner. The passenger was transported to a local hospital and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Both occupants were wearing DOT-approved helmets at the time of the crash.
Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in this crash; however, routine toxicology samples were taken and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
In 2022, Troop G has investigated 26 fatal crashes, which has resulted in 29 deaths.
