Car crash kills couple in Larose

Larose, La. - Two people were killed early Monday morning, following a car accident caused by the driver running a stop sign. According to State Police, a 71 year old Larose man was driving down LA 3235 in Lafourche Parish around 6 am, when he failed to stop at the intersection.  As Steven Bourg's car drove through the intersection, his Chevrolet Cavalier was struck on the drivers side by a Chevrolet Silverado.

Both Bourg and his 63 year old passenger, identified as Patricia Farmer were killed. Both were pronounced dead on the scene. 

The Silverado was being driven by 45 year old Ivy Terrebonne Jr. of Cut Off, LA. Terrebonne, who was wearing a seat belt, received minor injuries in the crash and was transported to Lady of the Sea Hospital. 

Alcohol use is not suspected to be a factor in the crash. Routine toxicology tests are pending for Bourg. Blood was taken from Terrebonne and the test results will be pending at the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab. This crash remains under investigation.     

Troopers remind everyone to always be aware of their surroundings, and to obey all posted signs and warning devices. While not all crashes are survivable, proper use of seat belts can greatly decrease an occupant's chance of death and may greatly reduce the extent of injury.   

Motorists that witness hazardous situations are urged to call *LSP (*577) and report that activity to the Louisiana State Police.
