Accident Leaves One Dead, One in Hospital
An accident in St. Martn Parish kills one man and leaves his passenger in the hospital. Major Ginny Higgins says 20-year-old Jude Barras was driving his car along Herman Dupuis Road when he left the roadway, striking a culvert, and going airborne. Barras was ejected from his vehicle as it flipped. The car eventually came to a stop when it struck an electrical pole. His passenger, 18-year-old Lauren Aucoin, was transported by helicopter to a Lafayette hospital.
