LAWTELL, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police said one man was killed and another injured when a car ran off a road and overturned, throwing both men out.

Trooper First Class Thomas Gossen said in a news release that Darryl Carrington, 25, of Church Point was killed and Lawarance Leday, 24, of St. Martinville was taken to a hospital.

Gossen said neither was using a seat belt when the 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier ran off of Louisiana Highway 35 at a curve, hit a culvert and overturned late Monday.

Gossen said authorities don't yet know which was driving.

The accident occurred about 2.5 miles south of Lawtell and 6 miles southwest of Opelousas.
