MANSFIELD, La. (AP) - State police say a 27-year-old Grand Case man died in a single vehicle accident on La. Highway 175 north of Mansfield.

Trooper Albert Paxton says John Washington was northbound Wednesday night when his pickup ran off the road, struck a tree and began to roll.

Paxton says Washington was not properly restrained and was ejected. Washington was pronounced dead at the scene by the DeSoto Parish Coroner's Office.

Paxton says alcohol use is suspected. A toxicology sample was taken and submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
