A Clinton man who wasn't wearing his seatbelt was killed in a single vehicle crash.

On March 5 at around 1:30 p.m., Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop A began investigating a single vehicle fatal crash that occurred on LA Hwy 67 south of LA Hwy 432 in East Feliciana Parish.

The crash took the life of 55-year-old Clinton resident Lionel Terrell.

The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred as Terrell was driving a 1998 Honda Civic northbound on LA Hwy 67. For unknown reasons Terrell’s vehicle ran off the roadway to the left. After leaving the roadway, Terrell’s Civic entered a ditch and struck two trees.

Terrell was not wearing a seatbelt and sustained fatal injuries from the crash. Driver impairment is unknown at this time; however, Troopers have submitted a toxicology sample from Terrell to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
