Fordouche, la (nbc33) — An 18-year-old died over the weekend in a single-vehicle crash.
The crash happened on Sunday, Dec. 16 at around noon. We’re told Hunter T. Kirkland of Morganza was driving down LA 77 in Pointe Coupee Parish when he approached a curve. For unknown reasons he failed to make his way around the curve and went off the road. He then overcorrected and crossed back over both lanes, left the roadway a second time, then hit a utility pole.
Kirkland was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, however, he sustained fatal injuries.
A sample of his blood has been submitted to the State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
