Pierre Part man dies in Assumption Parish crash

NAPOLEONVILLE, La. (AP) - A 30-year-old Pierre Part man died following a one-vehicle crash on La. Highway 401 near Napoleonville in Assumption Parish.

State Trooper Evan Harrell says Kerry Huey was driving a pickup east on Highway 401 shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday when the truck began to drift off the road.

Harrell says Huey then overcorrected, causing the truck to cross both lanes of traffic before rolling off the road. Harrell says Huey, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the truck as it rolled. Assumption Parish Coroner's Office pronounced Huey dead at the scene

Harrell says investigators suspect that alcohol played a role in the crash, and toxicology results are pending.
