Early this morning, a single-vehicle crash killed a man from Marksville, who was not wearing a seat belt, troopers say.

State police responded to the crash around 3:00 a.m. on LA Hwy 115, north of Hessmer.  

A spokesman with Troop E says 53-year-old Carl M. Laborde was traveling northbound on LA Hwy 115 when he lost control of his vehicle and exited the right side of the roadway.  After exiting the roadway, the vehicle collided with a concrete culvert. 

Laborde was pronounced dead at the scene.

Routine toxicology tests are pending.  The crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Police remind motorists that properly wearing your seatbelt will dramatically reduce your chance of being injured or killed in a crash. Louisiana law requires that every person in a vehicle, regardless of seating position, always remain buckled up.  Not wearing a seat belt remains the leading cause of death in motor vehicle crashes. 

Troop E troopers have investigated 34 fatal crashes in 2017, resulting in 41 fatalities.
