One Dies in Crash Near Kentwood

On Sunday, September 2, 2018 at approximately 11:30 AM Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L were notified of a single vehicle fatal crash on LA 1054 just south of LA 38 in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash has claimed the life of Denham Springs resident Woodrow Wilson Redmond, Jr. (33).

Redmond’s overturned vehicle was discovered by a passing motorist in the brush adjacent to LA 1054. The initial investigation determined that the crash occurred sometime during the late hours of Saturday, September 1st into the early morning hours of Sunday, September 2nd. Physical evidence suggested that prior to the crash, Redmond had been traveling south on LA 1054 approaching a slight left curve. Redmond’s vehicle traveled off the right side of the roadway. Redmond overcorrected to the left, causing the truck to exit the left side of the roadway, where it traveled through a ditch, entered into a wooded area, and overturned as it crashed into a tree.

Redmond was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected. Redmond was pronounced deceased on scene by Tangipahoa Parish Coroner’s Office.
