Krotz Spring Man Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident
A Krotz Spring man was killed in a single-vehicle crash that occurred around midnight this morning.
Master Trooper Brooks David reported 58-year-old Jeffery Nall was killed when, for reasons still under investigation, Nall steered his truck off the right side of the road, overcorrected. The truck then traveled off the left side of the road hitting a ditch and overturned ejecting Nall who was not wearing a seatbelt.
Nall suffered severe injuries and was transported to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Louisiana State Police would like to take this opportunity to remind/inform motorists that properly wearing your seat belt will dramatically reduce your chance of being injured or killed in a crash. We ask you to take one second to “buckle up!” Louisiana law requires that every person in a vehicle, regardless of seating position, always remain buckled up. Not wearing a seat belt remains the leading cause of death in motor vehicle crashes.
Motorists must be reminded that alcohol has many effects on the body. Alcohol can impair visual ability, alter sense of time and space, impair fine motor skills needed to operate a motor vehicle, and decrease reaction times. Just one drink may cause these effects.
This was the 56th Fatal Crash and 59th Fatality Troop I has investigated this year.
