Driver dies, passenger injured in Livingston Parish wreck

A Baton Rouge man died in a single-vehicle wreck in Livingston Parish early Sunday, and police suspect he was speeding.

Cameron G. Bordelon, 22, died about 1:30 a.m. Sunday when he was thrown from his car on La. 16, State Police Trooper 1st Class Jared Sandifer said in a news release.

Bordelon was not wearing a seat belt. A 16-year-old passenger was restrained in the front seat and suffered serious injuries. He was taken to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center.

Bordelon was driving a 2005 Toyota Corolla north on La. 16 south of La. 1028 when he drifted left toward the raised, center concrete median, the news release says.

Bordelon overcorrected and sped off the road to the right. The Corolla overturned, smacked into a tree and rolled down an embankment into a canal.

Troopers took a toxicology sample from Bordelon to test for impairment, the release says.
