An Abbeville man is dead after he was ejected from his vehicle in an early morning traffic accident on Highway 330 in Vermilion Parish.

According to details collected by Troop I investigators, 64- year-old Frank Blanchard of Abbeville was traveling south of La. 330 at around 1 a.m. Easter Sunday when he failed to negotiate a left curve. After over correcting twice, Blanchard's 2002 Chevrolet truck struck a culvert, ejecting him from the vehicle.

Blanchard, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was transported to Abbeville General Hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Toxicology results are pending.
