Webster Parish man dies in high-speed crash

A crash shortly just after midnight Wednesday took the life of a Webster Parish man.

Louisiana State Police Troop G are investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash on Fuller Road west of U.S. Hwy 371. This crash claimed the life of 50-year-old Steven Studdard.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by Studdard, was traveling east on Fuller Road at a high rate of speed. For reasons still under investigation, the Silverado exited the roadway and began overturning. Studdard, who was unrestrained, was ejected from the vehicle.

As a result of this crash, Studdard suffered fatal injuries. He was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Webster Parish Coroner’s Office. Impairment is a suspected factor. Routine toxicology samples were collected and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
