The initial investigation revealed that Morton was traveling westbound on LA 48 in a 2008 Isuzu Ascender. For reasons still under investigation, Morton’s Ascender traveled off the roadway to the left and struck a utility pole. Morton suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Impairment is not suspected however toxicology reports are pending. Pre-existing health conditions is a suspected factor in the crash. This crash is still under investigation and no further information is available at this time.

While not all crashes are survivable, taking simple precautions such as these can often mean the difference between life and death.
