A 24-year-old Mansfield man was killed Wednesday in a one-car accident on Hwy. 1 in Red River Parish.

Louisiana State Police say Brady Thigpen was killed after his Cadillac DeVille left the highway and hit a tree about one mile south of Hwy. 509. Thigpen was flown to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Troopers say they took from Thigpen a toxicology sample that will be submitted for analysis.

Speed is suspected to be a factor in the crash, say troopers, adding that their investigation continues.
