A one-vehicle crash has claimed the life of 27-year-old Joshua Montgomery, of Plain Dealing.
Louisiana State Police Troop G said the accident happened around 1:40 p.m. Sunday on Dorcheat Road , in the 1000 block, south of Allen Drive.
The initial investigation revealed that a 2008 Pontiac G6, driven by 24-year-old Darien Moore, of Minden, was traveling southbound on Dorcheat Road. For reasons still under investigation, the vehicle traveled off the road, collided with a utility pole, and then a tree.
Neither man was wearing a seat belt. Moore was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Montgomery was pronounced dead at the scene.
Impairment is not suspected, but routine toxicology samples were taken and will be submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
