CHENAL - A single-car crash claimed the lives of a father and son overnight in Pointe Coupee Parish.

It happened just before 11:30 p.m. Thursday on Hwy. 415 near Hwy. 414.

State troopers say 47-year-old Sidney R. Morel of Jarreau was heading south on Hwy. 415 when he failed to negotiate a curve. He over-corrected and ran off the road, causing the vehicle to flip several times.

He and his father, 68-year-old Sidney J. Morel, died at the scene. Police say both men were wearing their seatbelts.

Investigators believe the younger Morel may have been impaired at the time of the accident.
