Three killed in one-vehicle accident in Cut Off

CUT OFF, LA (WVUE) -

Three people were killed Tuesday morning after the vehicle they were in rolled several times and struck a tree, according to Louisiana State Police 

The crash happened around 5:30 a.m on Highway 1 near West 57th Street in Cutoff.

The accident claim the lives of 23-year-old Tyler Budd of Ormond, Fl., 34-year-old Nordell Willis of Jacksonville, Fl., and 30-year-old Marjorie Oldbear of Cut Off.

Police say a 2012 Ford F-150 was being driven south on LA 1 at a high rate of speed. For reasons still under investigation, the Ford ran off of the roadway to the right, struck a concrete driveway, and began to roll several times before striking a tree.

All three occupants were unrestrained and ejected. All three sustained fatal injuries and were pronounced dead by the Lafourche Parish Coroner’s Office.

Troopers are investigating to determine who was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash. Evidence of alcohol involvement was located at the scene and toxicology reports are pending on each individual. This crash remains under investigation.
