NEW ROADS, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police say a 73-year-old Woodville, Miss. man was killed in a single vehicle crash involving a cane truck on La. Highway 1 north in Pointe Coupee Parish.
Investigators identified the victim as Robert Sims Sr.
Trooper Jared Sandifer said Sims was driving a 1989 International tractor-trailer southbound that ran off the road and overturned Tuesday morning.
Sandifer said troopers initially believed that Sims suffered a medical condition prior to the crash. However, further investigation and an autopsy revealed that Sims was unrestrained and suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash.
