Mt. Hermon Man Killed in Crash on Lee Road

On Tuesday (May 5, 2020) shortly before 11:00 PM, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L
responded to a single-vehicle, fatal crash on LA 437 (Lee Rd.) at Narrow Rd. in St. Tammany Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 42-year-old Gabriel A. Varela of Mount Hermon.

The initial investigation led Troopers to determine that the crash occurred as a Chevrolet Impala, driven by Varela, was traveling north on LA 437. Varela’s vehicle traveled off the roadway and struck a culvert then an embankment. Varela was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, received fatal injuries, and was pronounced deceased on the crash scene.

At this time, speed is a contributing factor in the crash and impairment is suspected. As part of the ongoing investigation, toxicology will be performed on Varela. The investigation is ongoing.
