POINTE COUPEE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - State Troopers say a Baton Rouge man was killed in a single vehicle crash Friday night. The accident happened just before 10:00 pm on LA Hwy 416 in Pointe Coupee Parish.
Investigators say Justin Thompson, 22, was driving west on LA Hwy 416 when for unknown reasons he failed to navigate a left hand curve. His vehicle ran off the road to the right and rolled over several times.
Thompson was not wearing a seat belt at the time and succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash. Police do not believe driver impairment was a factor, but toxicology samples have been submitted for analysis.
