At approximately 10 p.m. Friday night the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office was called to the scene of a traffic accident in the 4500 block of Gray Rd. in Vinton. The investigation revealed a single vehicle accident occurred when a motorcycle was traveling westbound and failed to negotiate a curve, crossed the center line and skidded for about twenty feet, separating the driver from the motorcycle.
