Troopers say driver killed in single-vehicle crash on LA 42

FRENCH SETTLEMENT, LA (WAFB) -

A man is dead after a single-vehicle crash Monday night in Livingston Parish, according to authorities.

Louisiana State Police identified the victim as Devan Dalgo, 52, of Livingston.

Troopers reported the wreck happened on LA 42 north of LA 16 near French Settlement just after 9 p.m.

Tpr. Bryan Lee with LSP said the initial investigation showed Dalgo was headed north on LA 42 in a 1987 Toyota pickup when he veered off the road and into a ditch.

Lee stated investigators have not figured out what caused the truck to go off the road, but after hitting the ditch it flipped and Dalgo was thrown out of it.

Lee added Dalgo was not properly buckled and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Livingston Parish Coroner’s Office.

According to Lee, investigators don’t know if impairment was a factor in the crash. As with all deadly crashes on Louisiana highways, a sample of his blood was sent to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

The wreck remains under investigation.
