State police say a 45-year-old Church Point man is dead after his pickup truck ran off the side of U.S. Highway 190 Saturday and smashed into a culvert.
Trooper Stephen Hammons says Michael Cunningham was taken to a hospital in critical condition after Saturday night's accident. He died shortly after reaching the hospital.
Hammons says Cunningham was driving westbound on U.S. 190 west of Lawtell when his truck ran off the right side of the highway into a ditch and hit the culvert.
He says Cunningham was not wearing a seat belt.
