A 35-year-old Breaux Bridge man died when his vehicle ran off the road in St. Martin Parish early Friday and struck the embankment of a ditch, State Police said.
Curtis Wolinski was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers say Wolinski’s 2005 Dodge Caravan was traveling north on LA 3039 near Dean Leblanc Road shortly after midnight when it ran off the right side of the road, traveled through a ditch and struck the embankment. Wolinsky was not wearing a seat belt and sustained fatal injures.
Troopers suspect impairment to be a factor in the crash. A toxicology sample was taken from Wolinski and will be submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
The crash remains under investigation.
