#RoadSideMemorials#DontrellBoykins#JeromeEvans#LetsGoFishing Highway90 #BayouBlack News article dated 10/8/2014: Two men were killed Wednesday morning when the car they were in struck a tree, flipped and went into Bayou Black in Gibson, State Police said.
Police identified the victims as Jerome Evans, 23, and Dontrell Boykin, 31, both of Gray.
State Police spokesman Greg Marchand said Evans and Boykin were traveling west on La. 182 near Oak Forest Drive when the 2005 Toyota Camry they were in went off the right side of the highway. The Camry hit a tree, overturned and went into the bayou, where it was partially submerged.
Marchand said both men were trapped in the car, but it’s unclear which one was driving. The driver was passing through moderate fog and failed to negotiate a left curve, he said.
State Police Troop C responded to the crash about 7:40 a.m. The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office and West Terrebonne Volunteer Fire Department were also at the scene.
Neither occupant was wearing a seat belt, Marchand said. Both were pronounced dead at the scene by the Terrebonne Parish Coroner’s Office, but the cause and time of death have not yet been determined.
The crash is being investigated and it’s unknown if impairment was a factor, Marchand said. Blood was taken from Evans and Boykin for routine toxicology tests, and results are pending.
Marchand, who wasn’t at the scene, said emergency personnel actively work to break windows and free anyone trapped in a submerged vehicle. For safety concerns, civilians are not allowed to assist in such rescues.

I-25 north of Santa Fe--So many other #roadsidememorials missed as we try to make better time. Not sure why these intrigue me. They are like curious opportunities to remember our mortality and moments in time randomly calling out along the long stretches of road. When you start to notice, you will find many chances to stop and take note.
