Schreiver, La — Shortly after 10:30 p.m. oon March 28, a Houma man was killed when he was ejected after a single vehicle crash in Schriever, LA.
The investigation revealed that a 2002 Ford F-150 was traveling south on LA 24 South by the Lost Bridge in Schriever, LA. The F-150 was being driven by Diron Williams (B/M age 38) of Houma, LA. The F-150 failed to negotiate a slight right hand curve in the road causing the vehicle to drift onto the left shoulder. Williams attempted to correct the vehicles path but oversteered causing the vehicle to rotate clockwise across both lanes of LA 24 South and travel off the right side of the roadway. The F-150 entered a roadside ditch and struck a tree and driveway causing the vehicle to overturn several times. Williams, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead on the scene by the Terrebonne Parish Coroner’s Office. A passenger in the vehicle, who was wearing a seat belt, received minor injuries in the crash.
Alcohol use is suspected to be factor in the crash. Routine toxicology tests are pending for Williams. This crash remains under investigation.
