Houma Man Dies in Early Morning Crash

Houma, La. - Louisiana State Police Troop C is investigating a fatal crash that claimed the life of a 41 year-old man.

A spokesman for Troop C says it happened around 2:30am on LA 311 near the Westside Blvd. Extension Bridge in Houma.

Police say the victim's 2010 Land Rover was traveling north at a high rate of speed on LA 311 in Terrebonne Parish.  

The vehicle entered a left curve in the roadway as it approached the Westside Blvd. Extension Bridge intersection.  

The vehicle failed to negotiate the curve and traveled off the right side of the roadway where it traveled over 1,000 feet before striking a guardrail of the Westside Blvd. Extension Bridge.  

Upon impact, the vehicle became airborne and traveled over the roadway.

The SUV then landed in a large drainage canal.

The victim, identified as Rory Lyons', was later discovered by the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office Water Patrol after the empty Land Rover was pulled out of the Canal.  Lyons was pronounced dead on the scene by the Terrebonne Parish Coroner's Office.  It is unknown if Lyons was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.  After an extensive search, no other occupants were found.
