FRENCH SETTLEMENT, LA (NBC33TV) — One man is dead after a single vehicle crash in Livingston Parish early Saturday morning. It happened on LA 42 south of Watts Road. Louisiana State Police say William Stewart’s truck crossed over the westbound lane and ran off the shoulder to the left. The vehicle then began to rotate clockwise and came back onto the road. It then crossed back over both lanes again and ended up off the road to the right. The truck then hit an embankment and flew into the air. It landed on its roof. Stewart was not wearing a seatbelt during the crash. Troopers do suspect impairment was a factor. The crash remains under investigation.
