BAYOU BLUE – One 67-year-old man is dead following a single-vehicle crash on LA 316 in Lafourche Parish.

The crash took place around 11 p.m. on Monday near Country Estates Drive. The investigation revealed that 67-year-old Clem Whitmire was traveling north on LA 316 in a Dodge Charger at a high rate of speed. He entered a left curve and ran off the roadway to the right.

As a result, Whitmire's vehicle overturned several times and struck two utility poles before coming to a stop. Whitmire sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash and was pronounced dead by the Lafourche Parish Coroner's Office.

Alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the crash and toxicology reports are pending. Whitmire was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was the only one in the car.
