Louisiana State Police are investigating a single vehicle fatal crash that occurred Wednesday night on LA Hwy 1025 in Livingston Parish.
The crash claimed the life of 45-year-old Norman Holt of Denham Springs.
The initial investigation revealed that the crash occurred as Holt was driving a 2010 Ford F-150 eastbound on LA Hwy 1025. For reasons still under investigation, the Ford ran off the roadway to the right. The vehicle then traveled into a ditch and overturned.
Holt was unrestrained at the time of the crash and sustained serious injuries. He was transported to a local hospital, where he ultimately succumbed to his injuries. Impairment is suspected to be a factor in the crash on the part of Holt, and a toxicology sample was taken from him for analysis.
Troopers wish to remind motorists to always make good decisions while in a motor vehicle. Never drive while impaired, fatigued, or distracted, always ensure every occupant is properly restrained, and follow all traffic laws. While not all crashes are survivable, taking simple precautions such as these can often mean the difference between life and death.
