PORT ALLEN — A 70-year-old Baton Rouge man died in a fatal crash Thursday afternoon after losing control of his vehicle and crashing into a cement truck.
Lt. Ken Albarez, traffic commander for the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, said Denton Thomas was traveling eastbound on Rosedale Road around 12:30 p.m. Thursday when he crossed the center line and crashed his vehicle underneath a cement mixer traveling westbound.
Albarez said Thomas was pronounced dead at the scene.
Albarez said investigators believe Thomas may have been suffering with a medical condition that caused him to lose control of his car. The exact cause of the crash was still under investigation, Albarez said.
No other injuries were reported in the crash.
