Shortly after 7:30 this morning, Troopers with Troop I began investigating a two-vehicle fatality crash on LA 88 at Fremin Road.

The crash took the life of 55-year-old David Marcotte, according to S/T Jesse LaGrange, spokesperson for Troop I.

The preliminary investigation revealed Marcotte was traveling south on Fremin Road in a 2012 Chevrolet Colorado. For reasons still under investigation, Marcotte failed to yield and began to make a left turn onto LA 88 in front of an approaching 2005 Ford F-450.

It was being driven westbound on LA 88. The vehicles collided in the intersection and although Marcotte was properly restrained, he suffered fatal injuries. The driver of the Ford was properly restrained during the crash and suffered minor injuries.

Impairment is not suspected on the part of driver of the Ford and unknown on the part of Marcotte. A toxicology report is pending for both drivers and the crash remains under investigation.
