Single-vehicle crash in Sulphur claims three lives


Two adults and a small child are dead and a 10-year-old girl is in critical condition following a single-vehicle crash in Sulphur Friday afternoon, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said the crash happened around 2:30 p.m. on Bayou D'Inde Pass Road.

Investigators said the vehicle, driven by Michael A. Guillory Jr., ran off the road and into a ditch before hitting a cement utility pole.

Guillory, 30, and Kimberly D. Gordon, 35, both of 1227 Varney Circle, Lake Charles, were pronounced dead at the scene.

A 10-year-old girl and a 10-month-old girl were transported to local hospitals.

The 10-month-old was pronounced dead at the hospital while the 10-year-old is in critical condition.

Myers said excessive speed may be the cause of the accident but the investigation is ongoing.

As mandated by state law, a toxicology report will be conducted on Guillory.
