BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - State police say East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Deputy Dustin B. Hamilton has been killed in a two-vehicle accident Friday night.
Authorities say the accident happened about 7:15 p.m. on Louisiana Highway 946 in East Baton Rouge Parish.
State police say an investigation shows that the 24-year-old Hamilton apparently lost control of his patrol car and crossed into the southbound lanes. Police say Hamilton overcorrected to the right and collided with another vehicle.
Hamilton suffered fatal injuries from the crash. The driver of the other vehicle was transported to Ochsner Medical Center in Baton Rouge where her condition was not known.
