November 28, 2017

GONZALES, La. (AP) — Louisiana State Police say a boat trailer came unhitched from a pickup truck and crossed the center line of a highway, slamming into another vehicle and killing the driver.

The agency says 49-year-old David Burvant of Slidell died at a hospital in Gonzales after the crash Monday afternoon on Louisiana Highway 18.

Trooper First Class Jesse LaGrange says in a news release that investigators were looking into why the boat trailer detached from the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 20-year-old Jeremiah Allee of St. Amant.

He did not say whether Allee was cited or arrested.
