Louisiana State Police Troop I Spokesman Brooks David says that an 87-year-old Charenton man was no wearing a seat belt Monday, and he was thrown out of his vehicle after a crash.

David says the man, Lenis Clements, was trying to cross Louisiana Highway 87 from Ache-Clement Road, and his car was hit by one driven by a Franklin woman.

The 41-year-old driver, Kashonda Verret, was wearing a seat belt, and she only had minor injuries.

Routine toxicology tests were taken on both drivers.

David asks that drivers remember that wearing a seat belt can save your life.
