Truck driver killed in Acadia Parish crash


CROWLEY, La. (AP) - State police say a truck driver died and his passenger injured when the vehicle ran off the road and overturned.

Master Trooper Brooks David (DAH-veed) says the accident happened around 9:30 Wednesday night on La. Highway 97 in Acadia Parish.

David says Joseph was taken to a nearby hospital where he died and the passenger, 34-year-old Eric Bergeaux of Basile (bah-ZEEL') suffered moderate injuries in the accident.

The accident remains under investigation.
