KINDER, LA (KPLC) -

An Oberlin man was killed in a Wednesday morning crash, according to Louisiana State Police, Troop D.

Troopers say shortly before 10 a.m. Wednesday, authorities responded to a single vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 165, about two miles north of Kinder in Allen Parish.

Troopers say that a preliminary investigation revealed that a 2004 Ford Crown Victoria, driven by 78-year-old John D. Manuel, was traveling south on U.S. 165 when, for unknown reasons, the vehicle he was driving ran off the right side of the road then struck two trees.

Manuel served as the Allen Parish Constable and was on-duty at the time of the crash, troopers say.

According to troopers, Manuel, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Allen Parish Coroner's Office.

A routine toxicology sample was obtained from Manuel and will be submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
