Fordoche man killed in single vehicle crash

POINTE COUPEE PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

State Police say a single vehicle crash has taken the life of a Fordoche man. The accident happened around midnight on LA 77 just south of LA 81 in Pointe Coupee Parish.

Investigators say Matthew Martin, 29, was traveling southbound on LA 77 when he entered a curve and ran off the roadway to the right. He then over-corrected to the left and his vehicle began to rotate. The vehicle then ran off the road and hit a tree on the passenger side. Martin was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and sustained fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers believe that impairment was a factor in the crash, toxicology samples were taken and submitted for analysis.
