One person was killed when deputies say a driver lost control on Highway 249. Deputies say Jason Denbo was driving his 2007 Chevrolet northbound on Highway 249. A witness says Denbo ran a red light at the intersection of Highway 249 and Boudreaux was traveling at a high rate of speed. He lost control of his truck and slammed into a wooden utility pole with the driver's side door. He died on impact.

Deputies say speed and failure to maintain control were major factors in the crash.
