CONVERSE, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police say a 34-year-old Texas man died in a single-vehicle crash in Sabine Parish.
Troopers identified the victim as Charles Edward Panell of Joaquin, Texas.
Investigators say Panell was killed Saturday morning when his pickup ran off La. Highway 174 between Converse and Pleasant Hill, hit a culvert and overturned.
They say Panell was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
