A man was killed when his vehicle rammed an electric utility pole on Burgess Road early Saturday, the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office reported.
The wreck occurred about 1 a.m., just north of Oak Alley Drive. It damaged the utility pole, causing work crews to close Burgess Road until 11 a.m.
The Sheriff’s Office did not release the names of either the 57-year-old driver or the 29-year-old male passenger, who declined medical treatment.
