HOUMA, La. (AP) - State police say a 22-year-old Gray man died at University Hospital in New Orleans from injuries he suffered in a car crash on La. Highway 316 in Lafourche Parish.
The victim was identified as Jeremy Duet.
Troopers say Duet was northbound when his car left the road at the beginning of a curve shortly after 12 a.m. Thursday. Investigators say Duet over corrected his steering and his vehicle traveled counter clockwise across the center line before it was struck broadside by a southbound truck driven by 32-year-old Edmond Gros, of Vacherie.
Gros received minor injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
