Baton Rouge man killed in single vehicle accident

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.
