St. Mary Parish – Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop I were notified of a single-vehicle crash on LA Highway 182 near Allain Road in St. Mary Parish at approximately 2:30 p.m. on March 5, 2021. The crash ultimately took the life of 89-year-old Thomas McNulty of Franklin.

The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred as McNulty was driving a 2014 Toyota Camry east on LA182 when, for unknown reasons, he failed to maintain control of his vehicle. Upon doing so, the Camry exited the roadway, struck a culvert, then crashed into several trees.

McNulty was restrained at the time of the crash. He was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries. Impairment is not suspected to be a factor of the crash.

Earlier today, State Police Troop I was notified McNulty succumbed to his injuries on March 21, 2021.
