Troopers arrest suspect in hit-and-run crash that killed pedestrian
GRAY - Troopers say they’ve made an arrest in connection with a hit-and-run crash that left a pedestrian dead last Friday night.
Through help from the public and other investigative methods, State Police said they were able to develop 52-year-old Darrell Barlow as a suspect in the wreck that killed 22-year-old William Boyne. The green Ford F-150 that Troopers believed the suspect was driving at the time of the hit-and-run was located at Barlow’s residence in Chauvin.
Barlow was taken into LSP custody and taken to Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Center where he was booked on charges of vehicle homicide, felony hit and run, improper lane usage and obstruction of justice.
Boyne was walking north on the shoulder of LA 56 when the truck crossed the fog line and hit him. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Terrebonne Parish Coroner’s Office.
