 One person is dead after a rollover crash threw the driver from his vehicle Friday afternoon.

Shortly after 12:30 p.m., troopers were dispatch to a two-vehicle wreck on US Highway 371 about two miles south of LA Highway 531 in Webster Parish.

The investigation revealed a van driven by Bobby Young, 66, of Coushatta was headed north on Highway 371, when for reasons still under investigation, Young’s vehicle crossed the center line and hit a logging truck driven by Herbert Sawyer, 49, of West Monroe head-on. Young’s vehicle then left the right side of the roadway and rolled. Young was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and was thrown from the vehicle. Young was pronounced dead at the scene by the Webster Parish Coroner.

Toxicology samples were obtained and submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
