LAFOURCHE, La. -- A man not wearing a seat belt died in a single-vehicle accident Sunday morning in Lafourche Parish.

The accident happened at about 7:30 a.m. on La. 308 near Rapheal Project Road.

Golden Meadow resident Colby Charpentier, 27, was driving northbound on La. 308 when, for unknown reasons, he lost control and ran off the roadway to the right.

Charpentier's 2007 Chevrolet Silverado went into a field and a ditch, and then flipped several times before hitting a utility pole.

Charpentier, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle. He died from his injuries, police said.

Driver impairment isn't suspected, but troopers have submitted a toxicology sample to the crime lab.
