Unrestrained Minden man killed in crash

Shongaloo – Just after 11 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22, Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop G began investigating a one-vehicle fatality crash on LA Hwy 159, just south of LA Hwy 2. This crash claimed the life of 24-year-old Bret Dooly, who was not restrained.

The initial investigation revealed that a 2005 Ford F-150, driven by Dooly was traveling south on LA Hwy 159. For reasons still under investigation, he exited the roadway and traveled through the ditch before overturning. 

Dooly, who was not wearing a seat belt, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene by the Webster Parish Coroner.
