MADISONVILLE, LA (WVUE) -

State police say a 31-year-old Loranger man died in a single-vehicle crash off LA 22 in Madisonville Friday night.

31-year-old Brent D. Cyprian died of injuries from the crash, which happened just west of LA 1085, around 9:00 p.m. Friday.

LSP Troop L released this statement to news media Saturday morning:

The initial crash investigation led Troopers to determine Cyprian was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado eastbound on LA 22.  For reasons still under investigation, Cyprian’s vehicle crossed the centerline into the westbound lane.  Cyprian overcorrected to the right and then to the left, causing his vehicle to overturn as it entered the ditch on the westbound side of the roadway.  Cyprian’s vehicle continued through the ditch and crashed into a tree on the vehicle’s passenger side.  Cyprian was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.  He sustained severe injuries and was transported to Lakeview Regional Medical Center in critical condition.  Shortly after arriving at the hospital, Cyprian succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased by the Emergency Room Doctor.   As part of the on-going crash investigation, blood samples were obtained.  The samples will be examined by the St. Tammany Parish Coroner’s Office.
