HAMMOND, La (NBC33) — Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff deputies investigated a vehicle crash that happened around 6:00 a.m. Tuesday morning at the intersection of Old Covington and W. Pleasant Ridge Rd. in Hammond.
An initial investigation revealed that a 2009 pick-up truck, driven by Russell Ott, 38, was traveling south on W. Pleasant Ridge Rd. when it failed to yield at the intersection at Old Covington Highway.
