Ferriday Man Killed In Crash Near Jonesville

Late last night, a
single vehicle crash killed a man from Ferriday, LA.

Troopers
responded to the crash around 10:30 p.m., which occurred on LA Hwy 124, south
of Jonesville, in Catahoula Parish. The crash involved a 1995 Mack (propane
truck), driven by Randolph L. Coleman (W/M 63 yrs). The Mack was eastbound on
LA Hwy 124 when Coleman lost control and partially exited the left side of the
roadway before returning to the eastbound lane. After returning to the
eastbound lane, Coleman overcorrected his vehicle and exited the left side of
the roadway before overturning.

Coleman
was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected. He was pronounced dead.

The
Mack was loaded with 600 gallons of propane. None of the product was released.

Routine
toxicology tests are pending. The crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana
State Police would like to take this opportunity to remind/inform motorists
that properly wearing your seatbelt will dramatically reduce your chance of
being injured or killed in a crash. We ask you to take one second to “buckle
up!”
