Gonzales resident killed in two vehicle crash

ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) - State Troopers say a Gonzales man has been killed in a two vehicle crash.  The accident happened on LA Hwy 74 in Ascension Parish around 6:45 Friday evening.

Investigators say Adam N. Lambert, 21, was driving east on LA Hwy 74 when for unknown reasons he failed to negotiate a curve.  He crossed the centerline into the westbound lanes and hit another car head-on.

Lambert was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and sustained fatal injuries.  The driver of the second vehicle, Suzette Newman, 49, and her two passengers were wearing seatbelts and only suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in this crash. However, toxicology samples from both drivers have been submitted for analysis.
