Teen killed in ATV-pickup crash

EUNICE, La. (AP) - State police are investigating a fatal crash involving a Honda four-wheeler and a pickup in Evangeline Parish.

The accident happened early Sunday morning on La. Highway 757 near Eunice.

Troopers say 15-year-old Matthew Neal of Basile was driving an ATV southbound when he was struck from behind by a pickup driven by 21-year-old Jonathan Tucker of Eunice.

Trooper Stephen Hammons said ATV was not equipped with lights.

Hammons says neither Neal nor his 16-year-old passenger was wearing helmets and both were ejected. The 16-year-old was transported to a hospital with moderate injuries.
