in East Carroll Parish wreck

A 44 year-old man was killed in a single-car wreck in East Carroll Parish Friday.

Troy Williams, of Cordova, Tenn., was traveling north on Louisiana 577 when his car went through a stop sign and into the intersection of Louisiana 877, crossing the road before striking an embankment, trooper Albert Paxton said.

Williams was transported to a hospital in Delhi, La., where he died of his injuries.

Williams was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and impairment is suspected to be a factor in the wreck, Paxton said. The crash remains under investigation.
