Two-year-old dies in single vehicle crash in St. Landry Parish

A two-year-old is dead and three were injured after a single vehicle fatal crash.

Louisiana State Police say just before 10 a.m. on Sunday, a car was traveling east on LA 654 near Alton Road in St. Landry Parish. 

Investigators say that the vehicle drove off the right side of the road for unknown reasons, ran through a ditch, up an embankment, and struck several trees.

The driver and two juvenile passengers sustained minor injuries in the crash. The driver refused aid on scene, and the two juvenile passengers were transported to nearby hospitals.

State police also say a two-year-old child sitting in a child safety seat in the back seat of the car suffered severe injuries and died shortly after arriving at an area hospital.

Troopers investigating the scene do not suspect impairment to be a factor in the crash. Blood samples were taken at the scene, and were sent to the Louisiana Crime Lab for analysis.

The cause of the crash is unknown, and remains under investigation.
