Driver killed when pickup falls from parking garage

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police are investigating a fatal crash involving a pickup that fell from a downtown parking garage.

The accident happened about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday at a parking garage at Camp and Poydras streets.

Officer Gary Flot says the pickup crashed through a steel cable barrier and a glass window from either the fifth or sixth floor of the garage and landing upside down on the street below.

No one on the ground was hurt.

Flot says the Orleans Parish coroner will perform an autopsy and release the victim's name.
