Two teens have died following a single-vehicle crash Sunday night on I-10 in Acadia Parish.

According to State Police Troop I the crash occurred around 8:00 pm on December 29 near LA Hwy 91.

19-year-old Kylan Mier and 19-year-old Dante Lacomb, both of Morse, were killed in the crash.

Troopers say an initial investigation revealed the crash occurred as Mier was driving a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro westbound on I-10.

Troopers say Mier failed to properly negotiate the off-ramp curve at Exit 76 and his vehicle ran off the roadway and began to overturn. The vehicle then struck the LA 91 bridge embankment before coming to a stop.

According to troopers, Mier was restrained at the time of the crash but Lacomb, who was the front seat passenger, was not.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene by the Acadia Parish Coroner’s Office.

Impairment is unknown but standard toxicology samples were obtained for analysis.

Troopers believe that speed is a major factor in the crash.

This crash remains under investigation.
