SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - An overnight wreck turns fatal on Interstate-10 after a night of drinking among friends. Sulphur Police say around 2:30 Sunday morning 20 year old Ethen Kelley lost control of his vehicle causing it to overturn several times before it landed on its side in the east bound lane of I-10.

Of the five passengers, two were ejected from the vehicle. 23-year-old James "Trey" Arthur Killian III of Sulphur was transported to Christus St. Patrick Hospital where he later died from his injuries. 21-year-old Morgan Bean of Sulphur was transported to West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital and later released with minor injuries. The other passengers also only had minor injuries, and no one was wearing seatbelts.

Kelley has been booked into the Sulphur City Jail on careless operation, driving while under the influence and vehicular homicide. The mother of the victim wants this accident to serve as a warning for anyone thinking it cannot happen to them.

"He'll never say another 'I Love you mom'. So for that reason, I beg any person, I don't care who you are, how old you are, if you want to go out to drink and party, give your keys to someone else. And, if that person has been drinking, you call somebody" said Sanee Killian.

The accident remains under investigation by Captain Curt Cahoon of the Sulphur Police Department. SPD provided 7 News with video from the accident and it can be found on this page.

    While many people across the United States watched today's solar eclipse with special eclipse glasses, some students at Dequincy Elementary had a different option.  Smiles were on many faces of the third graders at the school, who were able to view the solar eclipse through a special Dobsonian telescope. This was all thanks to a local amateur Astronomer, Blake Gaspard.  Gaspard heard the school was interested in safe activities for the eclipse so he off...
