ASCENSION, La. (WAFB) - Troopers from Louisiana State Police began investigating a single vehicle fatal crash on LA Hwy 405 at Brou Road in Ascension Parish.

The crash claimed the life of 47-year-old Gentiele Thaddeus Nicholas Sr. of White Castle.

The initial investigation revealed the crash occurred as Nicholas was traveling eastbound on LA Hwy 405 in a 1998 Chevrolet Silverado.  For reasons still under investigation, the Chevrolet ran off the roadway to the right and overturned.

Nicholas sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

As part of the ongoing investigation, a toxicology sample was obtained from Nicholas for analysis.

Louisiana State Troopers wish to remind motorists that while not all crashes are survivable, statistics show that the chances of surviving a crash rise significantly when properly restrained. 

Making good choices while in motor vehicles such as never driving while impaired, always ensuring every occupant is properly restrained, and avoiding all distractions can often mean the difference between life and death.
