Shortly after 5:30 this morning, Troopers from Troop C were notified a of single-vehicle fatality crash that occurred on LA 1 near West 57th Street. The crash took the lives of 23-year old Tyler Budd of Ormond, Fl., 34-year old Nordell Willis of Jacksonville, Fl., and 30-year old Marjorie Oldbear of Cut Off.
