 Jonesville Man Killed in Concordia Parish Crash

Concordia Parish – On March 14, 2024, at approximately 12:45 a.m., Louisiana State Police Troop E responded to a one-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 84 at Pete Davis Road.  The crash claimed the life of 76-year-old Robert Hood of Jonesville.

The initial investigation revealed that a 1999 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Hood, was traveling east on U.S. Highway 84. For reasons still under investigation, Hood’s vehicle left the roadway, traveled down the ditch embankment and struck a tree.

Hood, who was not restrained, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Hood’s juvenile passenger, restraint usage unknown, sustained moderate injuries and was transported to a local hospital. 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 2024, Troop E has investigated 13 fatal crashes, resulting in 15 deaths.
