46-year-old Dexter Lee Lejeune dead after a pickup hit a bicycle in Acadia Parish (Estherwood, LA)

Officials identified 46-year-old Dexter Lee Lejeune, of Crowley, as the man who lost his life following a two-vehicle accident in Acadia Parish.

Louisiana State Police Troop I received reports of a collision involving a bicyclist near the intersection of US Hwy 90 and Roy Road, about 1 mile east of Estherwood in Acadia Parish on October 8, 2021, at around 7:46 p.m.

The preliminary investigation showed that Lejeune was heading west on US 90 on a Huffy bicycle. At that point of time, the driver of a 2020 Ram pickup truck was also going west on US 90 and approaching the bicycle from behind. The Ram pickup truck then hit the rear tire of the bicycle, throwing Lejeune from his bicycle.

Lejeune, who was reportedly wearing dark clothing and whose bicycle was not equipped with any lamps or reflective materials, received major injuries. On arrival, emergency responders rushed him to a Crowley area hospital, where he later died from his injuries. The driver of the Ram was wearing a seatbelt at that time of collision and remained uninjured. Impairment on behalf of the driver of the Ram is not suspected.

An investigation is ongoing.
