According to investigating troopers, at 1:50 a.m., a 2007 Ford truck driven by Roger Goza, 48, of Pensacola, Fla., was traveling west on U.S. 90. For reasons under investigation, Goza failed to negotiate a curve, traveled off the road, struck a private drive causing his vehicle to overturn. Goza, who was restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Mary Parish coroner, said Tfc. Stephen Hammons, Troop I public information officer.
Troopers suspect alcohol was a factor in the crash. Toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
