Larose man killed in Lafourche Parish crash
Shortly after 11:30 p.m. Monday night, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop C began investigating a single vehicle fatality crash that claimed the life of a Larose man on LA 1 in Cut Off.
The investigation revealed that a 1998 Chevrolet pick-up truck, driven by Chris Ougel, age 56, of Larose, was traveling south on LA 1 near West 56th Street in Cut Off. The truck, for unknown reasons, failed to negotiate a left hand curve and traveled off the right side of the roadway.
The Chevrolet entered a ditch where it struck a concrete driveway.
Ougel, who was not wearing a seat belt, was transported to Lady of the Sea Hospital where he later passed away from his injuries.
The crash remains under investigation.
