Avondale accident death of Christopher Molina |Obituary|
35-year-old Westwego man, Christopher Molina, has died in a fatal Avondale motorcycle crash that happened on U.S. 90 on Tuesday, August 17, 2021. The accident happened when Molina crashed into a tractor-trailer that was leaving a parking lot in Louisiana.
Police say Molina was driving a 2013 Harley-Davidson on U.S 90. In the West Tish Drive area, a 2007 Mack truck that was leaving a parking lot to join the road pulled right into his path.
Molina struck the rig and although he was wearing a helmet, he succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital.
Speeding may have been a factor as witnesses tell police Molina was speeding.
