New Iberia man dies after diving his truck into a canal

While details about the cause of the crash are not fully known, Louisiana State Police spokesman Ross Brennan said a 62-year-old man died in an accident near South Lewis Street and Highway 90 Monday morning.

Soldiers were called to the accident around 8am this morning to find a man driving down South Lewis Street eventually veered off the right-hand side of the road.

Brennan says the truck belonging to New Iberia’s John Rodrigue then struck a utility pole and ended up in a drainage canal.

Rodrique was wearing his seat belt, but in this case getting out of the truck was an obstacle for him.

The vehicle ended up upside down in the drainage canal and Rodrique was pronounced dead at the scene by the coroner’s office.

As is usual in any case of death or serious injury, a toxicological sample was routinely collected and analyzed by officers.

There have been six fatal accidents so far this year, killing seven people.
