GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -
State Police are investigating a single vehicle crash that killed two people as they were trying to evade police. The crash happened just after 2:30 am Saturday on US 61 just south of LA 621.
Troopers say that Joshua Davis, 24, of Westwego, was driving north on US 61 at a high rate of speed after Gonzales Police Officers attempted to stop him for a traffic violation. Davis then ran off the road and overcorrected, his vehicle began rotating and ran off the road again. The vehicle then slid off the road, entered a ditch and hit a culvert, causing it to go airborne. The vehicle flipped two times before hitting a large sign post in the front of a nearby church.
Neither Davis or the two other occupants in the car were wearing seat belts. Davis and the rear seat passenger, Lerone Ursin, 40, were pronounced dead at the scene. The front seat passenger, Quanmaine Scott, 17, attempted to flee the scene on foot. He was taken into custody shortly thereafter and was taken to a hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
It is unknown if impairment was a factor. The crash remains under investigation.
