An unrestrained man lost his life this morning after the vehicle he was driving traveled off the road and began to overturn. 

Shortly after 5:30 a.m., Louisiana State Police Troop F responded to a single-vehicle crash on LA Hwy 596 just north of Lake Providence. The preliminary investigation revealed a 1999 Lexus SUV, driven by 65-year-old Willie Williams of Lake Providence, was traveling north on LA Hwy 596 when the vehicle traveled off the right side of the road. Williams then overcorrected his vehicle, traveled across both lanes, entered a ditch, and began overturning. 

SHREVEPORT, La. – Acting U.S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that a Texas man was sentenced last week to 240 months in prison for conspiring to transport methamphetamine and cocaine.


State Police arrest a Slidell man after he allegedly hit a bicyclist, removed him from his windshield and left the scene.  Trooper Dustin Dwight says 48-year-old Larry Kellett struck 59-year-old Calvin Lefort Jr. of Slidell on US 190 Saturday night.

It was fairly easy to find out where Kellett went.  Dwight says all they had to do was follow a fluid trail.

After police found Kellett, Dwight says he offered a breath sample, which showed no alcohol in his system.  Dwight says they are still trying to find out why he left the scene, making more of a problem for himself.

For the first time since 2005, two state police cadet classes will run simultaneously. Aspiring troopers have reported for the 97th cadet class with 49 individuals. The 96th class has entered their 11th week of training. Sgt. Jared Sandifer says both classes are going through an intense training program.


Sandifer says people across the state should be happy that many are still willing to join the ranks and help serve them.


Sandifer says even though there will be two different classes, the end result will be the same.
