Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop F began investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash on Louisiana Highway 152, south of Louisiana Highway 2 on Aug. 7, after 4 p.m.. 

The crash took the life of a Dubach man. 

The initial investigation revealed a 2002 Dodge Ram pickup, driven by 69-year-old Danny Murphy, was traveling west on Louisiana Highway 152.  For reasons still under investigation, the vehicle exited the highway and struck a concrete culvert.  Murphy, who was not restrained, was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.  

A toxicology sample was obtained and will be submitted for analysis.  This crash remains under investigation.

Buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash. Failure to take a few seconds to buckle up can have devastating consequences.

In 2019, Troop F has investigated 26 fatal crashes resulting in 31 deaths.
