A New Iberia man was killed in a single vehicle crash in the 4100 block of Leonce Theriot Road.
Iberia Parish Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a crash on Monday at approximately 5:35 a.m. Upon arrival emergency personnel observed a white Toyota Yaris upside down in a ditch.
29 year old Joshua Hymel was located and was later pronounced deceased at the scene. The preliminary investigation indicates that Hymel was heading north attempting to overtake another vehicle when the driver went off the west side of the roadway and lost control of the vehicle.
The vehicle struck the ditch and went airborne and then struck a tree. Toxicology samples will be sent to the lab for routine testing.
