Man ejected from vehicle, killed on Old Hammond Highway
BATON ROUGE - A Baton Rouge man was killed in a single vehicle crash on LA 426 early Friday morning.
Kenneth Salinas, 26, ran off the road while traveling westbound on US 190 in a 2012 Lexus IS250. Louisiana State Police say his vehicle struck a culvert and became airborne before landing in a parking lot.
Salinas did not wear a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office responded shortly after 3 a.m. and pronounced Salinas dead at the scene of the crash.
Police suspect that Salinas may have been impaired at the time. A toxicology sample will be taken for analysis.
