New Roads man killed after crashing into Port Allen child’s bedroom

PORT ALLEN — A New Roads man has died after a crash late Friday night on Rougon Rd. in West Baton Rouge Parish.

It was just before 11:00 p.m. on Oct. 13 when West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputies responded to a single vehicle crash in the 4300 block of Rougon Road, that’s just off of Hwy. 190.

Dedrick Manchester, 43, of New Roads, was killed in the crash, according to WBRSO.

Manchester was driving along Rougon Rd. Friday night when for unknown reasons, his vehicle went off the roadway.

WBRSO says Manchester then hit a gas main and crashed into a home, specifically into the bedroom of a 9-yr-old girl. The girl was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries.

While this crash is still under investigation, investigators do suspect that impairment and speed were a factor. Toxicology results are pending analysis.
