ASCENSION PARISH, LA. (WGNO) – The Louisiana State Police are investigating a two-vehicle crash in Ascension Parish that killed a man from Gonzales.
According to investigators, at around 5:00 p.m. Thursday, 92-year-old Thomas Ayo, was driving south on George Rouyea Rd. in a 2016 Nissan Frontier when he stopped at a stop sign at Louisiana Highway 934.
