Salt-water truck overturns leaving driver and sole occupant dead

The Shreveport Times:

"Louisiana state police are looking into what caused a salt-water truck to overturn in Claiborne Parish today, leaving its driver and sole occupant dead.

Charles L. McVay’s 2003 Mack salt water truck was headed north on the Pattontown Road a little more than 5 miles south of state Highway 2 when it topped a hill, a report from Troop G says.

The truck ran off the right side of the road at around 12:45 p.m., toppling onto its side after skidding about 250 feet, the report said.

McVay, 58 and from Homer, was dead at the scene, the report said, adding he was wearing his seat belt and shoulder harness, and alcohol use is not believed to have been involved."
