ASCENSION —- A 42-yr-old man from Gonzales was killed after his car went off the roadway early Sunday morning.
It was just before 7:00 a.m. when State Police Troopers responded to a single-vehicle crash on LA 429 near Denham Road in Ascension Parish.
Steven Thomas, 42, of Gonzales, did not survive his injuries from the wreck.
The investigation so far shows that Thomas was driving a 2010 Nissan Maxima headed west on LA 429. For reasons still under investigation, Thomas’s car went off the roadway to the right, hit a culvert and overturned.
Troopers say Thomas was not buckled at the time of the crash and was ejected from his vehicle.
Thomas died on the scene from his injuries. A standard toxicology sample was taken from Thomas and will be submitted for analysis.
This crash remains under investigation.
