A 30-year-old man was killed Monday morning after he ran his vehicle off the road, hit a pole and was ejected, East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said in a news release.
The victim was not wearing a seat belt, Hicks said.
The crash occurred at 12:25 a.m. in the 8000 block of Mickens Road, Hicks said.
Thomas Joshua Devon, 30, of 8508 Greenwell Springs Road was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to reports, Devon was traveling eastbound on Mickens when he veered off the road and struck a pole.
Deputies believe speed was a factor in the accident. Deputies are also awaiting toxicology to determine if alcohol was a factor, Hicks said.
