GRAMERCY, La. (AP) - Authorities say a 46-year-old man died after wrecking his vehicle on La. Highway 3125 in St. James Parish as result of an argument with one of his passengers.
State police say Leonard Green, of Convent, was driving north near Gramercy around 2:30 a.m. Saturday while fighting with his front-seat passenger, 43-year-old Tracy Young of St. James.
Troopers say Young grabbed and jerked the steering wheel, which forced the car off the road and caused it to overturn several times.
Green was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. James Parish Coroner's Office.
Young and the rear-seat passenger suffered moderate to severe injuries and were hospitalized.
