Denham Springs – Shortly before 2:00 p.m. on March 21, 2024, Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop A responded to a single-vehicle crash on LA 1019 near Amite Church Road in Livingston Parish. The crash claimed the life of 74-year-old Alex Robeau Jr. of Denham Springs.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Robeau was traveling northbound on LA 1019 in a 2014 Chevy Silverado. For unknown reasons, the Silverado failed to negotiate a right hand curve, exited the roadway to the left and struck two trees.
Robeau, who was not properly restrained, was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. While impairment is not suspected, standard toxicology samples will be taken and submitted for analysis. 

While not all crashes are survivable, statistics show that properly wearing your seat belt will dramatically reduce your chance of being severely injured or killed in a crash. Louisiana law requires that every person in a vehicle, regardless of seating position, always remain buckled up. Properly wearing your seat belt is one of the most effective ways to save your life and reduce injuries in crashes.
