BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A local appellate court judge injured in a wreck on Monday morning says he is doing well and is ready to go home. Judge Harmon Drew's wife Jean, who was in the car with him, will stay in the hospital for another couple of days.

Louisiana State Police say the Drews were heading westbound along U.S. Hwy 80 just west of the Bossier-Webster parish line when their Toyota crossover left the roadway and hit a mailbox. State police believe Judge Harmon overcorrected, which caused the vehicle to roll and land upside down.

Both are said to have suffered moderate injuries and taken to LSU Hospital, but Judge Drew, 66, was taken by air as a precaution.

State police say they are still investigating the cause of the wreck.

Judge Drew is currently serving a second 10-year term on Louisana's Second Circuit Court of Appeal, based in Shreveport.

Jean Drew is Judge Drew's law clerk, legal researcher and coauthor. Together, they teach the law of search and seizure and the criminal code to officers in training at the local police academies.
