A single-vehicle accident took the life of one person and closed a roadway in Prairieiville on Saturday afternoon.
Evan Fellows, 19, died after being thrown from the vehicle.
A 22-year-old passenger was also thrown from the vehicle and remains in critical condition.
Deputies with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office arrived at Muddy Creek Rd. a little after 3 p.m.
APSO says, “the initial investigation revealed that Fellows was traveling south on Muddy Creek Road when the vehicle left the roadway for unknown reasons and struck a pole, ejecting both occupants.”
An Air-Med was summoned to take the 22-year-old passenger to a local hospital.
The deadly accident forced authorities to close Muddy Creek Rd. for around 4 hours.
The investigation into this accident remains open.
