ST. GABRIEL- One man is dead in a single car accident that occured near the ferry landing on River. Rd west of LA Hwy. 327 in Iberville Parish Thursday night.

Louisiana State Police say 24-year-old Cedrick D. Smith of Plaquemine wasn't wearing his seatbelt when the car he was riding in ran off the road and struck a telephone pole. Smith is a local rapper known as "CeddyBu". The driver of the car was 23-year-old Wilbert Pryor. He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Pryor was also unrestrained at the time of the accident. State Police are waiting for results of a toxicology report to determine if he was impaired.

Excessive speed is considered to have been a factor in the crash.
