A Gonzales man was killed Saturday morning in Gibson, La after crashing his bass boat, according to the Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries.
38-year-old Buddy Ray Poche was pronounced dead at the scene, WLF spokesman Adam Einck said.
The accident happened around 11:00 am in the barge canal near the Bayou Black Marina. For unknown reasons Poche lost control of his boat, ran into the bank and then some trees and cypress knees, Einck said. Poche was the only person on board.
Gibson is in Terrebonne Parish about halfway between Morgan City and Thibodaux.
