State police say an unrestrained motorist died when his car veered off the road and struck a pole.
Trooper Jared Sandifer says 52-year-old Armise Thomas III, of Paulina, died around 11 p.m. Saturday on La. Highway 1 in Iberville Parish.
Sandifer says Thomas was headed south when the car careened off the road to the left and crossed the median and northbound lanes.
He says the car slammed into a ditch and an embankment before going airborne and flying into the pole.
Sandifer says Thomas died at the scene.
