WEST BATON ROUGE- A man from Port Allen died after his truck crashed in the woods, overturned, and caught fire off I-10 Westbound near the Grosse Tete exit overnight.

Louisiana State Police say 31-year-old Donald Vallet, Jr. was not wearing his seatbelt when the crash occurred. Vallet was a deputy with the West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, according to Sheriff Mike Cazes.

Troopers do not suspect impairment was a factor in the crash.
