POINTE COUPEE, La. -- An off-duty state trooper reached speeds of more than 100 mph just before a fatal crash last month, according to The Advocate.
The wreck killed a 64-year-old Lottie man and also injured the trooper, Christopher Kelley, who was driving to New Orleans at the time of the crash to work a Mardi Gras detail.
Kelley was reportedly driving a state-issued Chevrolet Tahoe, but sources close to the investigation told The Advocate he wasn't responding to an emergency call when the wreck happened.
