Picayune resident killed in single vehicle crash

State Police say a single vehicle crash has taken the life of a Picayune resident.  The crash happened Saturday evening just before 8:00 pm on I-59 in St. Tammany Parish.

John McKean, 77, was driving northbound when for unknown reasons his vehicle started to drift into another lane.  When McKean overcorrected, it caused the vehicle to rotate and run off the road to the right.  The vehicle continued off the road and hit a fence, overturned and then hit a tree before coming to a rest.

McKean was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash but sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.  Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in the crash.
