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.
