St. Francisville teen dies from weekend wreck injuries

An 18-year-old St. Francisville man died in a Baton Rouge hospital early Tuesday from injuries suffered in a Saturday night single-vehicle accident in West Feliciana Parish, a State Police spokesman said.

Trooper 1st Class Jared Sandifer said Colton Crum was driving a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant west on La. 421 east of U.S. 61 about 9:45 p.m. Saturday when his car failed to make it around a right-hand curve.

The car ran off the road to the left, entering a ditch before striking several trees and a fence post, Sandifer said.

Crum was wearing a seat belt and impairment is not suspected to have been a factor in the crash, the trooper said.
