A man is dead after his pickup truck left the road and overturned in DeSoto Parish.
The crash happened shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday on LA 177 at Butler Rd.
A 2012 Toyota pickup, driven by 25-year-old Larry Brandon Maroney, Jr. of Pleasant Hill, was traveling northbound when his truck ran off the road, became airborne and landed on the passenger side in a wooded area.
Maroney, who was not wearing a seat belt, was partially ejected and died at the scene.
Investigators believe excessive speed and impairment played a role in the accident.
A toxicology sample was taken from Maroney and will be submitted for analysis.
