DES ALLEMANDS, La. (AP) -- State police are investigating an accident in which a man was killed after his pickup truck ran off a south Louisiana bridge.

The Courier of Houma reports that the accident at the Des Allemands bridge happened Wednesday afternoon.

The driver's identity was not available and state police declined comment until the investigation was complete.

Marie Loupe, who lives near the accident scene, told the newspaper she heard 'a huge crash' as the red and white 2006 Ford F-150, which was headed westbound on U.S. 90, hit the guard rail and plummeted more than two stories into a ditch.
