Authorities in Iberville Parish said one person has died in the area's only fatal accident over the Labor Day weekend.

White Castle Police said 28-year-old Jerome Wesley died Monday evening after the ATV he was riding went into the road near Louisiana Highway 1 and Lacroix Road and collided with an oncoming car.  The two people in the vehicle Wesley collided with had minor injuries.

Family members said Wesley, a father of two, was at a crab boil celebrating the Labor Day holiday, and the ATV failed to stop while he was riding close to the road.

Police said the exact cause of the accident is still under investigation.  Louisiana State Police said so far, it is the only recorded fatal accident in Troop A over the holiday weekend.

Emergency crews had originally reported three teenagers had been on the ATV, which turned out to be untrue.
