LAFAYETTE PARISH - Police say an unrestrained driver was killed in a single-vehicle crash on LA 339 early Sunday morning.

According to Louisiana State Police, 22-year-old Cody Morgan of Baldwin was traveling southbound on LA 339 at the time of the crash. Morgan was near Chemin Agreable Road when his vehicle failed to negotiate a curve and slid off the roadway.

He sustained fatal injuries as a result and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lafayette Parish Coroner's Office. 

It is currently unknown if impairment was a factor in the crash. Routine toxicology samples were taken by police and will be submitted for analysis.

The crash remains under investigation.
