Siracusaville – On May 19, 2021, shortly before 8:15 a.m., Louisiana State Police Troop I responded to a
single-vehicle fatal crash on US Hwy 90 between Morgan City and Amelia in St. Mary Parish. The names of
both occupants are being withheld at this time pending notification of family members.
The preliminary investigation revealed a passenger car was traveling west on US 90 when the driver lost control
and ran off the roadway before striking a tree. It was raining at the time of the crash.
The driver, who was not restrained, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. The toddler,
who was improperly restrained in a booster seat, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A toxicology sample was obtained from the driver and will be submitted for analysis. Driving too fast for
weather conditions is suspected to be a factor and the crash remains under investigation.
