FRANKLIN, La. (AP) – State police say a single-car accident in St. Mary Parish killed a New Iberia man.
Troopers say the accident is believed to have happened between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. Friday. A Nissan Maxima driven by 60-year-old Charles Rogers traveled off the right side of Louisiana Highway 87. The car overturned and Rogers, who was not wearing a seatbelt, died at the scene.
The accident was not discovered until hours later, when a farmer reported finding the car.
An investigation was underway Friday.
