The crash claimed the life of 23-year-old Chad Hibley of Bogalusa. The initial investigation led Troopers to determine that Hibley was southbound on LA 21 in a 2013 Ford Explorer. For reasons still under investigation, he exited the roadway and impacted a culvert followed by a utility pole. Hibley was unrestrained and died on the scene due to injuries sustained during the crash. Impairment is not suspected to be a factor. As part of the ongoing investigation, a blood sample was taken from Hibley for scientific analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
