Fatal accident on LA 100
Louisiana State Police–Troop I is currently investigating a one vehicle fatal crash on La 100, west of Crowley, within Acadia Parish.
On Friday, June 27, 2008, thirty–six year old Jared Regan, of Egan, La was operating a 1996 Mercury Mystic westbound on La 100. Regan passed another westbound vehicle and as he began to re-enter the westbound travel lane, he lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle slid sideways off the roadway, and entered the north side ditch. The vehicle struck a tree then came to a rest.
Mr. Regan was the lone occupant of the vehicle at the time of the crash, and no other vehicles were involved in the crash. Mr. Regan was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Alcohol is suspected in the crash.
This is the twenty-ninth fatal crash and the thirty- third fatality Troop I has investigated thus far in 2008.
