According to the incident report, Marks exited the Pier 90 parking lot in a 2003 Toyota Corolla at 8:25 p.m. As the Toyota pulled into the right eastbound lane of Highway 90, it was struck by a 2005 Volkswagen SUV driven by Charles Johnson, 66, of New Orleans.
Johnson suffered moderate injuries and was transported to West Jefferson Medical Center.
Speed is not considered to be a factor in the crash. Blood test results are pending an autopsy.
According to his obituary, Marks served in the U. S. Navy and was a tugboat captain employed by Octopus Towing.
