Crash kills Eunice man
A single-vehicle crash on La. 29 near Carl Loewer Road in St. Landry Parish took the life of 49-year-old Hubbard Arrington of Eunice, according to a news release from Louisiana State Police Troop I.
The crash occurred at about 7:50 p.m. Friday.
The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred as Arrington was driving a 2001 Ford Ranger pickup eastbound on La. 29 when, for unknown reasons, his vehicle ran off the roadway. Upon doing so, the Ranger traveled through a ditch and overturned.
Arrington was not restrained at the time of the crash and was ejected. He was transported to a local hospital where he ultimately succumbed to his injuries. Impairment is suspected as factor and standard toxicology samples were obtained for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
