MARINGOUIN - A man was killed in an overnight crash in Iberville Parish when the truck he was riding in flipped, throwing him from the vehicle.

State Police said the single-vehicle crash happened on LA 77 at Wheelock Lane in Iberville Parish. It claimed the life of 44-year-old Courtney Terrel Davis of New Orleans.

Troopers said Davis was riding in a pickup truck headed north on LA 77 when the driver ran off the road in a curve, and the vehicle overturned.

Davis wasn't wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle, according to State Police. He died at the scene.

The second person in the truck wasn't wearing a seatbelt but had only minor injuries, troopers say.

Investigators are still working to determine who was driving the truck at the time of the crash.
