Olla, LA Man Killed in One Vehicle Crash

A 26-year-old Olla man was killed Monday evening, March 10, 2014, in a single vehicle crash on LA 124, just east of US 84, in Winn Parish, according to Louisiana State Police.

Jarred Lynn Taylor, 26, of Olla, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers responded to the crash around 6:30 PM on March 10th. The crash involved a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado driven by Taylor.

State Police said the Chevrolet was eastbound on LA 124 (Olla-Winnfield highway) when Taylor apparently lost control and exited the left side of the roadway. After exiting the roadway, the vehicle collided with a tree.

Taylor was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected during the crash. Routine toxicology tests are pending and the crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Police reminds motorists that properly wearing of seatbelts will dramatically reduce chances of being injured or killed in a crash.

Troop E Troopers have investigated 12 fatal crashes in 2014, resulting in 14 fatalities.
