St. Mary Parish – Shortly after 12:30 a.m., on March 14 2021, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop I began investigating a single-vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 87 near Louisiana Highway 671 in St. Mary Parish. The crash took the life of 50-year-old Alvin Joseph Trosclair III of Charenton.

The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred as Trosclair was driving east on LA 87 in a 1994 Ford Pickup. For unknown reasons, Trosclair’s vehicle ran off the roadway to the right. After leaving the roadway, the Ford overturned and struck a tree causing Trosclair to be ejected from the vehicle.

Trosclair was unrestrained at the time of the crash. He pronounced deceased at the scene by the St. Mary Parish Coroner’s Office.  Impairment is unknown but a standard toxicology sample was obtained for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Troopers wish to remind motorists that, while not all crashes are survivable, statistics show that the chances of surviving a crash rise significantly when properly restrained. Making good choices while in motor vehicles such as never driving while impaired and always ensuring every occupant is properly restrained can often mean the difference between life and death.

Troop I has investigated 10 fatal crashes resulting in 11 deaths in 2021.
