EDGARD, La. (AP) — State police say a 29-year-old Harvey man was killed in a car crash in St. John the Baptist Parish around 6:19 a.m. Sunday.
Trooper Evan Harrell says Carl Sanders died from injuries he suffered in the crash.
Evan Harrell says Sanders was driving a car on La. Highway 3127 when a Freightliner dump truck, driven by 30-year-old Titus Stewart of Reserve, began backing out of a private driveway.
Investigators said Sanders, who was driving at a high rate of speed in heavy fog, was unable to avoid the truck. He was taken to Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, where he died.
