PONCHATOULA - State police say a Madisonville man was killed in a one-vehicle accident in Tangipahoa Parish.

It happened Thursday on La. Highway 445 east of Ponchatoula.

Trooper Nick Manale says 33-year-old Justin Estopinal was northbound when he lost control of his SUV, ran off the highway, struck a dirt embankment and hit a utility pole and large tree.

Manale says Estopinal was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Tangipahoa Parish Coroner's Office.
