Vermilion Parish – Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop I were notified of a single-vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 13 near Matthew Road in Vermilion Parish. The crash took the life of 35-year-old Brenton Keith Bobb of New Iberia.

The investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred during the night, but was not discovered until daylight hours. Troopers were able to determine Bobb was traveling south on LA 13, at a high rate of speed, when he lost control of the Kia 4-door passenger car and exited the roadway. Upon doing so, the car overturned several times before coming to rest on its passenger side in a field.

Bobb, who was restrained at the time of the crash, succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital. Impairment is unknown, but a standard toxicology sample was obtained for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
