LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - State police say a Downsville man died from injuries suffered in a one-vehicle wreck.
The accident happened Sunday morning on La. Highway 3072 at Highway 33 north of Ruston.
Troopers say a 2012 Mack tractor trailer, driven by 61-year-old Lester Jordan, was westbound on Highway 3072 when it crossed the center line, traveled off the south side of the roadway and struck a tree.
Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lincoln Parish coroner's office.
