A Livingston man died in a two-vehicle crash early Tuesday morning on La. 30 in Ascension Parish, State Police Troop A reported.

The crash happened shortly before 6 a.m. on La. 30 west of La. 73 in the Geismar area, when Robby Watts, 31, of Livingston, was traveling eastbound in a 2015 GMC Sierra and, for reasons still under investigation, crossed the center line, striking head-on a westbound 2015 Chevrolet Silverado. 

Watts, who was unrestrained at the time of the crash, suffered fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Impairment on the part of Watts is suspected, and a toxicology sample was obtained from him for analysis, State Police said in a statement.

The driver of the Chevrolet was also unrestrained at the time of the crash, but sustained minor injuries. He was given a chemical breath test and showed no signs of impairment.
