Plaquemine man dies in single-vehicle crash Tuesday night

A Plaquemine man died Tuesday night when his pickup hit a driveway and flipped several times on La. 75 at Bayou Sorrel in Iberville Parish, a State Police spokesman said.

Trooper 1st Class Jared Sandifer said Matthew G. Allen, 34, of Plaquemine, was driving his 2001 Ford F-150 north on La. 75 shortly before 7 p.m. when he ran off the road to the right, hit a culvert and flipped over several times.

Allen was not wearing his seat belt and suffered fatal injuries in the crash, Sandifer said.

Troopers do not know if Allen was impaired, but submitted a blood sample to the State Crime Lab for analysis, Sandifer said.
