Unrestrained Driver Killed in Single-Vehicle Crash


Ouachita Parish – On Sunday, December 10, 2023, shortly after 7:00 a.m., Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop F began investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash on LA-546 near LA-838 (New Natchitoches Road).  The crash claimed the life of 27-year-old Christopher Clark of West Monroe.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2002 Ford F150, driven by Clark, was traveling south on LA-546.  For reasons still under investigation, the Ford exited the roadway, overturned, and struck a tree.

Clark, who was unrestrained, was ejected and sustained life-threatening injuries.  He was transported to an area hospital, where he later died.  Routine toxicology samples were collected and will be submitted for analysis.  This crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Police would like to remind motorists to slow down, buckle up, and lessen the distractions in the vehicle.  Crash forces do not care who you are or what you drive.  The faster you drive, the greater the risk of serious injury or death; not wearing a seat belt dramatically increases that risk. 

In 2023, Troop F has investigated 40 fatal crashes, resulting in 48 deaths.
