Joseph Leonhard "Trey" McGinn III (5903)



3/17/2011: Joseph McGinn III died from internal injuries at some point after he fell off the West Bank entrance to the Pontchartrain Expressway following an accident that an officer responded to, but apparently didn't look for a victim though he had McGinn's wrecked motorcycle towed. McGinn was driving his motorcycle on the Crescent City Connection toll bridge on the evening of March 17 when he was struck by an unknown driver in a hit-and-run. McGinn was thrown over the rail of the elevated highway onto the ground. McGinn's family's lawsuit alleged that Lavigne knew the motorcyclist was missing, but made no attempt to find him. In addition, Lavigne allegedly dismissed the tow truck driver who warned him to search for the driver of the motorcycle following the accident. http://cases.justia.com/louisiana/fourth-circuit-court-of-appeal/2015-2015-ca-0165.pdf?ts=1437674887
