Calcasieu sheriff's deputy killed in crash

An off-duty Calcasieu Parish sheriff's deputy has died from injuries suffered in a one-vehicle crash.

The accident occurred at about 8 p.m. Saturday in Iowa (EYE-oh-WAY).

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Kim Myers tells the American Press 26-year-old Jacob A. Piazza of Iowa was traveling eastbound on Sidney Leger Road when his truck left the roadway, struck an embankment which was covering a cement culvert and became airborne.

When the truck landed, Myers said the truck struck some trees and ejected Piazza.

She says he was pronounced dead at the scene.
