Baton Rouge – Shortly after 12:00 am on August 14, 2020, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop A began investigating a single vehicle fatality crash on US Hwy 61 south of LA Hwy 42 in East Baton Rouge Parish. The crash took the life of 38-year-old Clint Mock of Baton Rouge.
The initial investigation revealed the crash occurred as Mock was traveling southbound on US Hwy 61 in a 2020 Jaguar F-Pace. For reasons still under investigation, the Jaguar ran off the roadway to the right and struck a guardrail bordering the roadway.
Mock was properly restrained at the time of the crash; however, he sustained fatal injuries. He was pronounced deceased on the scene. As part of the ongoing investigation, a toxicology sample was obtained from Mock for analysis.
Louisiana State Troopers wish to remind motorists that all occupants in a vehicle must be restrained, regardless of seating position. While not all crashes are survivable, statistics show that the chances of surviving a crash rise significantly when properly restrained. Making good choices while in motor vehicles such as never driving while impaired and always ensuring every occupant is properly restrained can often mean the difference between life and death.
