Sometime before 4 p.m police were notified a vehicle crash on LA Hwy 104.

The crash claimed the life of 45-year-old Jason Ryder of Krotz Springs.

The investigation revealed Ryder was driving southbound on LA Hwy 104 and ran off of the right side of the roadway.

The vehicle entered a ditch, overturned, and struck a private driveway before coming to rest upside down.

Despite wearing a seatbelt, Ryder was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Landry Parish Coroner’s Office.

Impairment is unknown and toxicology tests are pending.

This crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Police would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists that wearing your seat belt is your best chance of survival in a vehicle crash.

Not wearing a seat belt remains the leading cause of death in motor vehicle crashes.
