NATCHITOCHES PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A Pleasant Hill man was killed early Sunday morning in a one-vehicle wreck in Natchitoches Parish.

Wallace Scott Jones, 22, was driving eastbound on LA Hwy 174 when he lost control of his 2002 GMC pickup, according to Louisiana State Police.

The wreck happened about 30 minutes after midnight just west of LA Hwy 487 near Ajax. Police believe the vehicle veered off the left side of the road, then Jones over-corrected and ended up off road on the right side where it flipped over in a ditch.

Police said Jones wasn't wearing a seatbelt, and was partially ejected during the crash. They suspect alcohol may have been a factor.

Jones was pronounced dead on the scene.

Routine toxicology tests are pending and the investigation is ongoing.
