Monroe man dies in Ouachita Parish crash
Shortly before 7:20 a.m. Thursday morning, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop F began investigating a single vehicle fatal crash on LA Hwy 139, just south of the Morehouse Parish line. This crash took the life of Jared Streeter, 30, of Monroe.
The initial investigation by State Police revealed the crash occurred as Streeter was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado, northbound on LA Hwy 139, while attempting to pass another vehicle. For reasons still under investigation, the vehicle traveled off the left side of the road, overcorrected and traveled back across both lanes into a ditch. After entering the ditch, the vehicle became airborne and struck a large utility pole.
Streeter, who was restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Ouachita Parish Coroner’s Office.
A toxicology sample was obtained and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
In 2019, Troop F has investigated eight fatal crashes resulting in nine deaths.
