State Police Troop I says a Eunice man was killed Sunday evening following a single-vehicle crash on LA Hwy 91 near Jacob Road in Acadia Parish.

The crash claimed the life of 37-year-old Cory Landreneau of Eunice.

Troopers say Landreneau was driving a 1995 Chevrolet Silverado northbound on LA Hwy 91 when he failed to negotiate a curve, traveled off of the roadway and overturned.

At the time of the crash, Troopers say Landreneau was unrestrained and was ejected from the vehicle. He sustained critical injuries and was transported to Lafayette General where he later died.

Impairment is unknown at this time, but troopers say that standard toxicology samples were obtained and submitted for analysis.

The crash is still under investigation.
