Bogalusa resident killed in late night crash

(WAFB) - State troopers say a Bogalusa resident has been killed in a late night vehicle crash.  The crash happened just before 10:30 pm Saturday night on LA 436 in Washington Parish.

Sidney Sumrall, 54, was driving west on LA 436 when for unknown reasons the vehicle drifted off the road to the right. Sumrall overcorrected and ran off the road to the left. The vehicle then hit an embankment, overturned and Sumrall was ejected from the vehicle.

Sumrall was not wearing a seat belt at the time and was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcohol use is not suspected to be factor in the crash, but toxicology samples have been submitted for analysis.
