Mandeville Man Dies In St. Tammany Parish Crash

Officials say a 21-year-old Mandeville man is dead after a single vehicle crash in I-12 Wednesday night.

Louisiana State Police say the crash happened at 6:20 p.m. when Joseph Cherry's pickup truck veered onto the shoulder and traveled down the grass embankment.  The truck partially overturned and hit a tree.

Cherry was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, but his injuries were still severe and he died after being transported to the hospital.

Troopers don't believe impairment was a factor, and the investigation into the cause of the crash continues.
