One person was killed Monday night after a single-vehicle crash on LA 35 in St. Landry Parish.

Louisiana State Police Troop I says that 25-year-old Darry Carrington of Church Point was killed Monday night on LA 35 at Homer Richard Rd in St. Landry Parish.

Troopers say their investigation revealed that Carrington and another passenger were traveling northbound on LA 35 in a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier when, for unknown reasons, it failed to negotiate a turn. The vehicle traveled off the right side of the roadway and into a ditch where it struck a culvert and overturned.

Both passengers were unrestrained and were ejected from the vehicle.

Carrington died as a result of his injuries, according to Troopers. He was pronounced dead by the St. Landry Parish Coroner’s Office. The other passenger was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries.

Toxicology tests are pending. The crash remains under investigation.

Troopers say they are still trying to determine who was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash.
