Atlanta Man Killed in Winn Parish Crash

Winn Parish 
– On March 11, 2023, Louisiana State Police Troop E responded to a one-vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 34 west of Louisiana Highway 471.  The crash claimed the life of 37-year-old Thomas Evans.

The initial investigation revealed that a 2012 Chevrolet Impala, driven by Evans, was traveling west on Louisiana Highway 34. For reasons still under investigation, Evans’ vehicle left the roadway, struck multiple objects before overturning onto its roof. 

Evans, who was not restrained, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Routine toxicology samples were obtained and submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.

While not all crashes are survivable, proper use of seat belts can greatly decrease an occupant’s chance of death and may greatly reduce the extent of injury. Always ensuring every occupant is properly restrained can often mean the difference between life and death.

In 2023, Troop E has investigated 12 fatal crashes, resulting in 13 deaths.
