Logansport man loses life in Desoto crash

On June 25, 2013, at 11:25 p.m., Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop G responded to a single vehicle fatal crash on U.S. Highway 84 west of Louisiana Highway 481.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2002 Chevrolet truck, driven by 34-year-old David Lovett of Logansport, was traveling west on U.S. Highway 84 at a high rate of speed and drove off the right side of the road. The Chevrolet drove through a ditch, struck a culvert and began overturning. 

Lovett was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the Chevrolet. Lovett suffered serious injuries as a result of the crash and was transported to DeSoto Regional Hospital where he died. 

 A routine toxicology sample was obtained from Lovett and will be submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
