LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - A Carencro man has died after a traffic accident this morning in Lake Charles, according to Lake Charles police.

Lt. Jeffrey Keenum, department spokesman, says officers were dispatched to a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of I-210 westbound and U.S. 90 around 5:36 a.m.

On arrival, officers learned that a Honda Accord being driven by Charles Ozenne, of Carencro, was exiting the interstate and failed to stop at the stop sign at the bottom of the off ramp.

The car was then struck by a Ford F-250 being driven by Justin Guidry, of Iowa.

Ozenne was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police do not suspect that impairment was a factor in the crash but routine toxicology is pending on both drivers.
