Claiborne Parish man dies when car strikes residence


A Claiborne Parish man died when his car struck a residence.

He has been identified as 24-year-old Deuntrez Javonte Adams, of Homer.

The one-vehicle wreck happened at 12:40 a.m. April 9 on Louisiana Highway 3062 just east of Louisiana Highway 2, according to Louisiana State Police.

Adams was driving a 2001 Pontiac Grand-am west on LA 3062 when the car ran off the opposite side of the road and hit the residence, a state police Troop G statement says.

Adams, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene by a representative of the Claiborne coroner's office.

Authorities have not yet determined whether impairment was a factor in the wreck.

As is routine in such investigations, toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted for analysis.

The state police statement makes no mention whether anyone in the residence was hurt.

Nor is there any information about the extent of damage to the structure.
