Minden man killed in crash; speed suspected to be factor

A Minden man was killed just before 11 a.m. Sunday, February 13 in a single-vehicle crash on Dorcheat Road.

Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop G investigated the accident that claimed the life of 28-year-old Colby Foster.

The initial investigation revealed Foster was driving a 2007 Dodge Nitro southbound on Dorcheat Road  just south of Benson Road.  For reasons still under investigation, the Dodge ran off the road and over-corrected.  As a result, it traveled across Dorcheat Road and entered a ditch, where it overturned and struck a tree.  

Foster, who was restrained, suffered fatal injuries as a result of this crash.  He was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Webster Parish Coroner. 

Speed is suspected to be a contributing factor in this crash while impairment is not; however, routine toxicology samples were taken and submitted for analysis.  The crash remains under investigation.
