Troopers believe alcohol was factor in deadly crash on LA 38

ST. HELENA PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities said they suspect a 21-year-old man who died when he lost control of a truck Monday evening was impaired.

The Louisiana State Police said Evan Vides of Ethel crashed on LA 38 about two miles north of LA 10 in St. Helena Parish a little before 8 p.m.

Troopers said their investigation showed he was headed west on LA 38 in a 2000 Toyota pickup when he went off the road in a curve.

They reported he then overcorrected, which sent the truck spinning across both lanes of traffic and off the road on the opposite side.

According to investigators, the truck hit several trees and flipped. It ended up on its roof.

Vides was pronounced dead at the scene.

LSP said they believe he had been drinking before crashing. A sample of his blood was sent to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for toxicology analysis.

Troopers added he was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.
