A Melville man is dead and another injured following an early morning crash in St. Landry Parish.
The crash took place at 5:20 a.m. on LA 105 just north of Melville.
State troopers say 27-year-old Jarvis Carey's truck crossed the center line of the highway in a curve. Carey overcorrected, sending his truck into a ditch before it crashed into a fence post.
Carey was pronounced dead at the scene.
His passenger was ejected from the vehicle and sustained moderate injuries. He remains in a local hospital.
Neither men were wearing seat belts.
The crash remains under investigation.
