A young man was killed Sunday morning while putting up signs at Healing Place Church.
State Police who investigated the accident found that an SUV was going north on Highland Road when a silver BMW pulled out from the parking lot in front of the SUV going in the opposite direction.
When the SUV tried to evade the car, it ran off the road and killed twenty two year old Jordan Geautreau of Gonzales. Geautreau was putting up a sign on the edge of the road when he was struck by the SUV.
Troopers do not suspect that either of the drivers were impaired, but they said that this tragedy could have easily been avoided.
