Despite being properly restrained, the driver sustained severe injuries.  He was transported to a local hospital, where he ultimately succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash. As part of the ongoing investigation, blood samples were collected and will be submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for scientific analysis.
