Unrestrained Driver Dies in Vehicle Crash

Baton Rouge resident Justin P. Thompson, 22, died from a single vehicle crash just before 9:45 p.m. June 6,2014.

Louisiana State Troopers report the crash happened on LA Hwy 416 west of LA Hwy 415 in Pointe Coupee Parish.

Initial investigation revealed, Thompson, driving a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe, was headed westbound on LA Hwy 416 when he did not curve left on the road. His vehicle continued to the right, went off the road and rolled several times.

Troopers say Thompson was unrestrained at the time of the crash, and he suffered fatal injuries as a result.

Driver impairment is not suspected; however, a toxicology sample was taken from Thompson and submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
