Abbeville man dies in single-vehicle crash on I-10 Friday morning

A 58-year-old man died Friday morning in a single-vehicle crash along Interstate 10 in Iberville Parish, Trooper 1st Class Jared Sandifer said in a news release.

Michael R. Flournoy, of Abbeville, was traveling east on I-10, just west of La. 77, Friday morning when he lost control of his pickup truck and crashed into a tree on the driver’s side door, Sandifer said.

Although it was raining at the time, Sandifer said, authorities aren’t sure if weather was a factor in the crash.

Sandifer said Flournoy was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash and driver impairment is not suspected.
