A New Iberia man has died after a crash on US Highway 90 and Darnell Road in Iberia Parish. Troopers say it happened around 9:00 pm Friday night. Troopers say 28 year old James Gonsoulin was driving a 2005 Ford passenger car East on US Highway 90 toward Darnell Road, when he traveled off the right side of the road in a curve. Troopers say Gonsoulin then entered the median, causing his vehicle to overturn several times. Troopers say Gonsoulin was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle.
He was transported to a local hospital where he pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
It is unknown if impairment was a factor in this crash; however, routine toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
