44-year-old Danny Chambliss of St. Landry is dead after a crash early Wednesday morning on LA Hwy 106 at LA 3042 in Evangeline Parish.

Investigators with State Police say Chambliss was walking across LA 106 when, for unknown reasons, he walked into the path of an eastbound truck being driven by 19-year-old Landon Fontenot of Ville Platte. Chambliss was hit in the eastbound lane.

Fontenot was properly restrained and was not injured. Routine toxicology tests are pending, but impairment is not suspected.

Authorities continue to investigate.
