St. Tammany Parish, La. – Police are investigating a single vehicle fatal crash that took the life of 24-year-old Jeffery Cuccia of Slidell.

It happened shortly after 5 a.m. on LA 433, approximately 1.5 miles west of U.S. 11, Saturday morning.

Investigators say Cuccia was traveling west on LA 433 in a 2003 Toyota Camry when, for unknown reasons, he left the roadway to the right and struck a tree with its left side causing the vehicle to overturn.
