Single vehicle crash kills two in Terrebonne Parish

HOUMA, LA. - Shortly after 9:30 Thursday night, Troop C responded to a single vehicle fatality crash on LA 182 near Cannon’s Landing. The crash took the lives of 55-year old Duffy Price of Houma and 57-year old Tommye Riehl of Lockport.

The preliminary investigation revealed Price was traveling east on LA 182 in a 2002 Nissan Sentra, when for unknown reasons, he ran off of the roadway to the right and struck a guardrail. He then overcorrected to the left and again ran off of the road where he struck several trees.

Price’s vehicle overturned and came to rest along the bayou side. Neither Price nor his passenger Riehl were wearing seat belts and both suffered fatal injuries. They were pronounced deceased on scene by the Terrebonne Parish Coroner’s Office.

Impairment is unknown at this time and standard toxicology tests are pending on the part of Price.
