Police: Scooter driver dies after plummet from I-10 Causeway on-ramp

A Metairie woman died this afternoon after losing control of her scooter on the I-10 on-ramp from Causeway South.

State police say the 44-year-old Paula Noto was making the turn towards the down-ramp onto the highway, when for reasons unknown, she lost control and hit the guard rail.

"She was ejected from the scooter and fell approximately 40 feet into the left-hand lane of I-10," said Louisiana State Police Trooper Melissa Matey.  "She was pronounced dead on the scene."

Matey said the woman was driving a 2009 Citycom 300i scooter at the time of the crash. 

According to Matey, impairment and speed aren't considered factors in the crash, but the cause is still under investigation.
