ST. ROSE - A Monday morning crash resulted in the death of a 68-year-old St. Rose resident. 

Louisiana State Police were called to the scene of the crash on LA 48 near Ponderosa Road shortly after 5 a.m., where they found that Allen Morton had been killed.

Police say Morton had been traveling westbound on LA 48 in a 2008 Isuzu Ascender when he swerved off-road and hit a utility pole. 

The impact resulted in a fatal injury and police say Morton was pronounced dead on the scene. 

Though impairment is not suspected, as per procedure, a toxicology sample was taken and its results are pending.

Police say Morton may have suffered from a pre-existing health condition and this may have been a factor in the incident.

The tragic crash remains under investigation.
