ALLEN PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

An Oakdale man was killed in an early Saturday morning crash, according to a news release from Louisiana State Police, Troop D.

Authorities said the single-vehicle crash happened around 4:20 a.m. Saturday on Sam Cloud Road, north of La. 10.

The crash involved a 2006 Chevrolet pickup, driven by 42-year-old Sherwin Ashworth.

The Chevrolet was northbound on Sam Cloud Road when Ashworth reportedly lost control and exited the right side of the roadway.  

Authorities said after exiting the roadway, Ashworth overcorrected his vehicle to the left and then again exited the right side of the roadway before colliding with a utility pole.  

Ashworth was not wearing his seatbelt and was partially ejected. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Routine toxicology tests are pending.  

The crash remains under investigation.
