UPDATE: Officials have arrested Samuel Clay Richard, 32, of Church Point, on charges of felony hit and run, negligent homicide and operating a vehicle while under suspension. Richard was booked into the St. Landry Parish Jail.


ST. LANDRY PARISH - Louisiana State Police are asking for assistance in locating the driver of a car that struck and killed a bicyclist last Friday.

Randy Thibodeaux, 59, of Sunset, died when he was hit while riding in the 2600 block of La. Hwy. 932. The impact threw Thibodeaux into a ditch, where he was discovered Sunday afternoon by family members searching for him.

The car involved left the scene, but investigators believe it may be a modern steel metallic/gray 2013-15 Honda Accord 2-door. They said the vehicle is likely missing a right side mirror and may have further damage on that side of the car.

Anyone with information is asked to call LSP Troop I at 337-262-5880.
