Friday night a man was killed on Blackwater road in Zachary.
The accident happened around 8 pm. Thirty six year old Todd Thomas was driving a pickup truck down Blackwater road. Thomas was going so fast that he couldn't handle a left hand curve. The truck ran off the road, hitting two culverts, and a tree.
Both Thomas and his passenger were partially ejected from the truck. The passenger died due to his injuries. Thomas was transported to Earl K. Long Hospital in critical condition. Troopers have charged him with Vehicular Homicide, DWI, Careless Operation, and not wearing a seatbelt.
