Whenever the police respond to an accident in the wee hours of the morning, they expect the worst. Nothing good happens at 5 in the morning. Sadly, this proved to be the case this week in a single-car crash near Choudrant.
Police responded to an accident that occurred on Interstate-20 just east of Choudrant. When they got to the scene, they found that only one vehicle was involved. And it appears there was only one occupant of the car – the driver.
At about 5:15 am on Monday, May 11, the police received a report of a crash in the Eastbound lanes of the Interstate. A man was traveling in the Eastbound lanes when, for reasons unknown, he lost control of his vehicle.
31-year old Adam Poisso, of Tallulah, lost control of his car and veered off the road to the right side. When he left the highway, his car crashed into a number of trees. He was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash. However, it did very little to protect him.
By the time the cops arrived at the scene, the victim had suffered what would prove to be fatal injuries. He had succumbed to his injuries before help arrived and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Thankfully, there were no other cars involved in the crash and nobody else was injured. While there must have been witnesses to the crash, no further details were provided.
The police suspect that impairment may have played a role in the accident that took the life of Adam Poisso. The investigation is ongoing and toxicology reports are pending.
