Posted: Updated:


OBERLIN, La. (AP) - State police say a DeRidder man has been killed in a three-vehicle accident in Allen Parish.
The accident was reported shortly after 6 a.m. Monday.

A state police report says a 1990 Toyota 4 Runner traveling east on Louisiana Highway 112 ran off of the roadway in a slight curve.  The driver, 52-year-old Michael D. Cooley of DeRidder, overcorrected and re-entered the roadway striking a westbound log truck.  The driver of the log truck attempted to avoid the crash and sideswiped another log truck that was traveling east.

Cooley, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene.  Neither of the other drivers was injured.
The crash remains under investigation.
