Eunice motorcyclist dies of crash injuries

A Eunice man whose motorcycle crashed into a car that turned into his path in New Iberia Thursday morning died of his injuries early Friday, police said.

Toepfer sustained head injuries in the crash, Sheriff Louis Ackal said in a news release. Although he was wearing a helmet, it was not one certified by the Department of Transportation, Ackal said.
