A St. Martinville man is dead after being struck by a vehicle while going to get his mail, deputies say. 

The accident happened in the 1000 block of Lady of the Lake Road in St. Martinville shortly before 5:30 p.m. today. 

A spokeswoman with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office says James Guigneaux, 75, walked into oncoming traffic while on his way to the mailbox. 

The driver of the southbound vehicle attempted to avoid hitting Guigneaux, but deputies say, the victim moved into the vehicle's path. 

Guigneaux was then transferred to a local hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.  

The spokeswoman says alcohol and speed were not factors in the crash, and no charges were filed against the driver.
