Posted: Updated:

WINN PARISH, La. (KALB News Channel 5) On March 10, a single vehicle crash killed a man from Olla. Louisiana State Police reported he was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected during the crash.

Troopers responded to the crash around 6:30 p.m., which occurred on LA Hwy 124 east of US Hwy 84. 

The crash involved a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado, driven by Jarred Lynn Taylor, 26. 

The Chevrolet was eastbound on LA Hwy 124 when Taylor lost control and exited the left side of the roadway. 

After exiting the roadway, the vehicle collided with a tree. 

Taylor was pronounced dead.

Routine toxicology tests are pending.  The crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Police would like to take this opportunity to remind/inform motorists that properly wearing your seatbelt will dramatically reduce your chance of being injured or killed in a crash. Troopers ask you to take one second to "buckle up!"

Troop E Troopers have investigated 12 fatal crashes in 2014, resulting in 14 fatalities.
