CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A motorcyclist is fighting for his life after he was thrown from his bike in Caddo Parish Tuesday night.

Caddo deputies say it happened just after 10:30 p.m. on Highway 1 just south of Dixie-Blanchard Road. Deputies tell us the motorcyclist may have been speeding when he lost control on a curve. He hit a yield sign then slid another 200 feet until he was thrown from the bike. Deputies say he was rushed to LSU Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

No word if he was wearing a helmet.
