RACELAND, La. – A Marrero man died this morning in a single-car accident near the Raceland Sugar Mill.

Louisiana State Police spokesman Jesse LaGrange said 22-year-old Kenneth Anderson was driving down LA182 near Raceland just before 7 a.m. when he lost control of his 2012 Chevrolet Impala.

Anderson ran off of the two-lane road to the right side as he entered a left-hand curve, overcorrected, and ended up leaving the road on the left side.

Anderson’s car hit a cement culvert and, despite being properly restrained, he died on the scene.

The LSP has ordered toxicology tests to see if impairment played a part in the accident.
