At 5:45 a.m. Saturday, troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop F responded to a single vehicle fatal crash on Louisiana Highway 33 north of Interstate 20.
The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2014 Peterbilt tractor trailer, driven by 45-year-old Thorne Thornton, of Marion, was traveling north on Louisiana Highway 33 when it lost control and drove off the right side of the road. The Peterbilt then struck an embankment and several trees before overturning.
