A passenger in Simoneaux's vehicle, 17-year-old Stormy Hunnicutt, of Prairieville, was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead on the scene by the Ascension Parish Coroner's Office.

Simoneaux sustained minor injuries and was treated before his arrest. He was booked into the Ascension Parish Jail on charges of two counts of negligent homicide, reckless operation, careless operation and no seat belt. His bond has been set at $100,000.
