Two From Covington Die in Crash Near Loranger

Tuesday (December 6, 2022) shortly after 4:00 p.m., Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L began investigating a single vehicle fatal crash on LA Hwy 40 near LA Hwy 445 in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash claimed the lives of 67-year-old John Bitter and 64-year-old Janice Pellegrin, both of Covington.

The initial investigation revealed the crash occurred as the driver, John Bitter, was eastbound on LA Hwy 40 in a 2011 Nissan Sentra. For reasons still under investigation, the Nissan crossed the center-line and exited the roadway. After leaving the roadway, the Nissan impacted a tree.

Despite both occupants being properly restrained, they both sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash. Bitter was pronounced deceased on the scene. Pellegrin was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced deceased. Impairment is unknown, but a standard toxicology sample was obtained from the driver for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
