St. Martinville man thrown from truck, killed in crash

A St. Martinville man was killed Wednesday night when his northbound truck struck a ditch embankment and overturned.

Brady Hebert, 55, was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the 2001 Ford truck, State Police said.

Hebert was traveling on La. 96 at 10:41 p.m. in St. Martin Parish when he crashed, Trooper Stephen Hammons said in a release.

Hammons said investigators do not know if alcohol was a factor in the case, which remains under investigation. Toxicology results are pending.
