The state department of Wildlife and Fisheries said a Prairieville man died Saturday in a boat crash on the Blood River.

Agents said they found the body of Larry Andre, Jr., 59, around 10:15 p.m.

LDWF said Andre’s wife, who was a passenger on the boat, told them they were on the river when he collided with a bulkhead and trees, ejecting him into the water around 9:55 p.m.

Investigators said Andrew suffered serious head trauma when he hit the water. His wife stayed in the boat and has minor injuries.

Agents said Andre was not wearing a personal flotation device and they believe alcohol played a significant factor in the wreck.

The Livingston Parish Coroner will determine the exact cause of death.
