BATON ROUGE - Police identified the victim of a deadly wreck near Cortana Mall this week.
Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said Scott Adams, 39, died in the one-vehicle wreck Tuesday afternoon in the 8500 block of Cortana Place.
McKneely said Adams lost control of his vehicle in a curve and hit a tree, rolling the vehicle over onto its top in a parking lot of Cortana Mall.
He said a 16-year-old in the vehicle with Adams was taken to a local hospital and released with minor injuries.
McKneely said alcohol isn't a suspected factor in the wreck.
